March 12, 2020: Many upcoming UC San Diego Health events have been canceled because of health concerns related to COVID-19. We are updating our events calendar as we learn of changes, but please confirm the status of any event using the provided contact information before attending.
If you're facing a new diagnosis or serious illness, meeting others who are in the same situation can help. Support groups can offer a safe space to ask questions, share coping strategies, or learn new information about diseases or treatments.
Many groups are also open to family members or caregivers. Some groups invite guest doctors, nurses, therapists or other providers to talk about a subject related to the group's needs. See the links below to learn more about each group's format.
