Living Well with Mesothelioma Support Group

This is a support group for people with mesothelioma and those who care for them.

It is funded by the Greater Manchester Asbestos Victims Support Group (GMAVSG), and run by GMAVSG & Mesothelioma UK.

It meets on the first Monday of every month, from 1.30pm to 3.30pm, in the Lincoln 1 Room at Methodist Central Hall, Oldham Street, Manchester M1 1JQ.

These meetings provide an opportunity to meet others who understand what you are going through, and to learn more about mesothelioma and the help that is out there.

Some sessions will offer the chance to try complementary therapies, and to learn techniques to help you cope with the effects of mesothelioma.

Sessions are free of charge, and refreshments are provided.
