Melanoma Patients Australia provides support across Australia to those with melanoma, their families, friends and carers. We offer a range of services for you to access including emotional support and information, support groups and peer to peer connections.
MPA Townsville Support Group meets on a regular basis. These support meetings are unstructured, relaxed get-togethers open to those with melanoma and their family members and friends. These groups offer a safe and understanding environment and provide first hand insights, information and comfort to those attending. All are facilitated by MPA’s trained volunteer Peer Supporters, all of whom have also been touched by melanoma in some way. They do really ‘get’ what you’re going through as they’ve been there themselves.
