Child, Family & Teen Programs

A cancer diagnosis can be emotionally overwhelming for the entire family.

They offer a lifeline of understanding, education, and connection during a challenging time, ultimately promoting better overall well-being and resilience within the family unit.

Counseling Services

Short-term individual counseling is an essential and valuable aspect of mental health care. It provides timely, focused, and support for individuals dealing with the various emotional and psychological challenges of diagnosis, promoting symptom relief, skill development, and improved overall well-being. At Cancer Support Community – CA Central Coast we offer individual, couples, children/teen, and family short-term counseling, and can help navigate you to a long-term counselor if requested.
