When you have a serious health condition, receiving support and encouragement from others who’ve been there can make the journey feel easier and less lonely. When you join a support group, you’ll meet other people who know what it’s like to be in your shoes and can offer insight about what may be ahead.
You don’t have to be a current PAMF patient to participate in our support groups—many are free and open to the community. Our goal is to create an environment where you’ll receive comfort and encouragement.
Support Groups for Your Condition
We offer support groups for a wide range of conditions— from arthritis to diabetes—as well as several forms of cancer, including blood cancer, breast cancer, metastatic cancer and prostate cancer. We also offer support groups people facing infertility challenges, sleep disorders and for people who have had or are considering weight loss (bariatric) surgery. These groups meet on a regular basis and allow you to form a community with other people facing similar challenges.
Support Groups for Parents
Whether you’re having your first child or you want insight from other parents, you might benefit from a parenting support group.
For new parents, we offer Baby Steps to Parenthood, Parent’s Outlet Support Group and other New Parents’ Support Groups.
If you’re a new mom, consider our breastfeeding support groups as well as A Mother’s Place, a support group for postpartum mothers held in Fremont.
