The Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Support Program (CCSP) provides clinical services and conducts research to help patients, caregivers, and families cope with cancer, recovery, and survivorship. CCSP professionals offer cancer-specific psychiatric assessment; counseling; education and survivorship programs; nutritional assessments; integrative medicine; physical symptom management; financial assistance; and a wide range of programs through the Mary Anne Long Patient and Family Resource Center. The CCSP also partners with community and rural cancer practices throughout North Carolina to improve cancer care.
