Support Groups

Support groups offer an opportunity to talk with others who are facing the same challenges. This can provide comfort, stress release, and a safe place to share thoughts and concerns. Stony Brook University Cancer Center offers several support groups to benefit patients with cancer.

Our HealthConnect referral service has the most up-to-date information on the groups' specific meeting dates and times. For more information and to register, call HealthConnect at (631) 444-4000.
