Coping with Cancer Support Group
Saint Joseph Hospital
We now offer the Coping with Cancer Support Group for patients, family and caregivers via Vidyo teleconferencing.
Coping with Cancer Support Group is a free community resource open to patients, survivors, caregivers, and families impacted by cancer upon diagnosis and during treatment.
Each support group session covers a variety of topics, including:
- Coping with the ups and downs of cancer treatment
- Stress reduction and coping strategies
- Social support
- Mindfulness, relaxation and art therapy
- Education around common challenges
In Case of an Emergency
If you have a mental health emergency, I encourage you not to wait for communication back from me, but do one or more of the following:
- Call a trusted loved one
- Call Colorado Crisis Services at 1-844-493-8255
- Call Lifeline at (800) 273-8255 (National Crisis Line)
- Call 911
- Go to the emergency room of your choice
Emergency procedures specific to Telehealth services
There are additional procedures that we need to have in place specific to Telehealth services. These are for your safety in case of an emergency and are as follows:
- You understand that if you are having suicidal or homicidal thoughts, experiencing psychotic symptoms, or in a crisis that we cannot solve remotely, I may determine that you need a higher level of care and Telehealth services are not appropriate.
- I require an Emergency Contact Person (ECP) who I may contact on your behalf in a life-threatening emergency only.
Your registration indicates that you understand I will only contact this individual in the extreme circumstances stated above.
