The Center for Chronic Illness (CCI) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization promoting well-being and decreasing isolation for those impacted by ongoing health challenges through support and education. CCI offers free, peer support groups facilitated by licensed mental health professionals and Master's level mental health interns. CCI's programs are designed to bring people together who live with different types of health challenges and diagnoses, recognizing the shared emotional experience of many who are impacted by chronic illness. Please note, because we are a Seattle-based organization, all support groups are scheduled on Pacific Standard Time (PST).
