Gilda’s Toronto offers 8-week support groups three times a year. Our support groups are run by mental health professionals who have a strong understanding of the unique needs of individuals who have been impacted by cancer.

Support groups are not operated on a drop-in basis. We encourage commitment to the entire 8-week.  A commitment to the group helps to build community and allows for topics and conversations to be built on week by week.

The following is required to participate:

  • Computer, phone or tablet with a camera
  •  Internet connection
