Finding The Right Person or Type of Support

Canteen and other organisations bring together people with similar experiences so you can talk about things with people who really, truly understand – or just take some time to chill out and have fun.

Sometimes you talk about cancer in these groups and share stories and tips for coping with each other and with professionals. Other times you just hang out and make new friends with people who get what you’re going through.

Find out about Canteen peer support groups and programs.

Log in to the Canteen Community to join in online forums and connect with other young people in similar situations to you. It can be really helpful to read other people’s real-life stories and realise that you are not alone in what you are feeling. It can also make things easier to open up when you can be anonymous.
