TherapyDen

A cancer diagnosis can be devastating and often brings up feelings of depression, grief, fear, sadness or anger. Navigating treatment options can be overwhelming and exhausting. Even in remission, cancer can cause lingering trauma, anxiety and depression. According to the NCBI, cancer survivors are twice as likely to suffer from mental health issues as adults who have never had cancer. Whether you are struggling to accept a recent diagnosis or trying to figure out what your life looks like post-cancer, a mental health expert can help. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s cancer specialists today. Fees may apply.
