Support Groups

As part of our commitment to keeping patients and staff safe throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have cancelled our group activities including all support groups. Please see our COVID-19 Supportive Care Online Resources page for helpful information and resources such as online support groups for patients and caregivers to use during this unprecedented time. If you have any questions, please call (805) 879-5690.


The Ridley-Tree Cancer Center offers a wide range of support groups to provide our patients with a welcoming place to exchange information and receive support. Many patients learn from common experiences and come away with tools to manage life more effectively during and after treatment. Support groups are also available for caregivers. All support groups are facilitated by professional staff and are offered free-of-charge.

Please visit the online calendar for date, time and location information for upcoming Support Groups.

If you have any questions, please call (805) 879-5690.
