  • An opportunity to be supported and to help support others
  • Professional advice and support from skilled facilitators
  • A chance to talk about your concerns, share experiences and information
  • Develop new skills for looking after yourself and coping with day to day life
  • Dealing with your emotions, and the emotions of your family
  • Feel less isolated by being connected with a group.

Some Support Groups that are available include:

  • Prostatectomy Classes
