Welcome to the Center for Chronic Illness!

Living with chronic illness brings many challenges, which can leave you feeling overwhelmed and isolated. Our support groups are designed to provide a safe space to meet others impacted by ongoing health challenges. Licensed mental health professionals facilitate all of our groups. These professionals offer guidance and structure, helping you get the most out of your group meetings.
We currently provide six in-person support groups across the greater Seattle area and three support groups via our web-based platform. Please visit the Programs page of our website to learn more about all of our support groups.
Health Education Events
A chronic illness can affect numerous aspects of your life. To help you along your journey, the Center for Chronic Illness provides health education events on a variety of topics for both patients and healthcare professionals. These events include presentations on topics such as self-care, mental health, nutrition, symptom management, and social and financial resources.
