How Does Mental Health Support Work?
Accessing our support services is simple. Your first step is meeting with one of our mental health experts, specially trained to help people going through cancer treatment like you and your family.
During this first meeting, our expert will ask questions about your diagnosis and treatment and discuss your current state of mind, feelings, and any concerns. Based on this conversation, your psychiatrist or psychologist will create an individualized plan to meet your specific needs and goals.
