Mental & Emotional Health

Anxiety, fear and depression are normal to experience at any point in your survivorship journey. Cancer survivors sometimes find it challenging to cope with new limitations or side effects from their cancer diagnosis and treatment. It is important to remember that you’re not alone.  Sharing your experiences with others through a support group or online forum can help improve your overall mental health.

Understanding that changes and challenges to your mental health are normal can help you identify when to seek assistance from a medical professional. In our needs assessment of over 800 of Georgia’s survivors, we found that many survivors are struggling with the emotional health aspect of survivorship and need assistance areas such as anxiety, depression, fear of recurrence, managing stress and more. As you explore our website, you’ll find that we have identified many resources that may be successful in helping improve the emotional aspect of survivorship. The Georgia Center for Oncology Research and Education (Georgia  CORE) is committed to helping cancer survivors decrease or alleviate the impact of these concerns.
