Support Groups

The Social Service Department at Massachusetts General Hospital offers many types of support groups, including groups for certain types of cancer, siblings of children with life threatening illnesses, and programs for parents of children with cancer. All of our support groups are free of charge to participants and are offered on either a drop-in or registration basis.

Oncology Social Workers are licensed mental health professionals who provide support for the many issues that may affect patients and their families during cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
