At Cancer Support Community Valley/Ventura/Santa Barbara we are committed to ensuring that no one in our community faces cancer alone. Although in-person support is what makes our support program so special and impactful, due to the COVID-19 situation, we have suspended all in-person programming at CSCVVSB and at our hospital locations.
Orientation, Support Groups, and Guided Imagery classes are now provided using Zoom, a HIPAA-compliant TeleMental Health platform and we have provided below several links for Healthy Lifestyle and Mind/Body videos and other resource options – all to be accessed from the safety and privacy of your home. All services are at no cost to the participants!
