Let’s Get Started

Sometimes it’s hard to ask for help, especially if you don’t know what you need. We get it. That’s why we make it easy to get started at Cancer Support Community Montana, so you can find the customized support you need in our warm, welcoming environment. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.

STEP 3

Sign up for and attend a
new participant Orientation

These orientation sessions are designed for anyone wanting to learn more about CSC Montana, including cancer survivors at any stage of treatment and survivorship, support persons of a loved one with cancer, local health professionals, and more.

During New Participant Orientation, you will learn about the history of CSC Montana; our organization’s mission, philosophy, and values; and the five cornerstones of our program of support. 

You’ll get an overview of our programs and services and, if you attend in person, receive a tour of our building.

Fill out the New Participant Form or call (406) 582-1600 to get started.

Select A program
(Or Two) To Explore

Now you’re ready to participate in the wide variety of programs on our calendar – from topic-specific educational sessions to cooking classes to yoga and social events – and meet others in the CSC Montana community. All programs and services are free of charge. Please note: registration online or by phone is required for many of our programs.

Participation in support groups or individual counseling requires a bit more preparation – just a quick meeting with one of our mental health clinicians. You’ll discuss your specific needs, learn how support groups and/or counseling works, and receive referrals for other resources as needed.

Call 406.582.1600 to set up a phone call or in-person appointment.
