Support Groups

 

 

Sometimes a little support along the way can make a big difference.

suport Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene and our community partners offer a wide range of support groups for our patients, their family, and friends. Each support group has its own meeting schedule, so please call the group that interests you to speak with the appropriate contact person.
