Attending a health-related support group will help you bridge the gap between medical support and emotional support.

 

This will in turn help you understand your mental and social health needs. A group such as Hummingbird Cancer Support Group will help you make connections, make friends and talk to people going through the same treatment. It provides you common safe ground to talk about how you are feeling, the side-effects you are experiencing, the coping strategies and perhaps the positive things that have come out of your diagnosis.

 

Hummingbird CSG offer support in a H.E.A.L.I.N.G way and Help, and Support is at the top of the list. Our team consists of local people, some who have experienced cancer first hand and others who are just happy to sit and listen to your story. We are also able to offer virtual meetups if you are not able to attend the support group in person. The sociable structure of our group means that people often feel part of a family and amongst friends.

 

It is quite possible that you will see the same faces each week, this is an excellent opportunity to buddy up with others, aid each other and keep in touch with each other outside the meetings. It is also a good opportunity to make new friends and ensure your mental health is looked after.
