Spotlight on Mental Health
Depression impacts up to 1 in 4 cancer patients, and anxiety affects nearly as many patients and survivors. Caregivers are also at risk for substantial distress. To help bring these critical issues to the forefront, we're introducing "Spotlight on Mental Health," a blog series that will examine the unique mental health concerns and needs of cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, and providers. The series will also explore challenges to accessing mental healthcare and share ways we are working to close the gap so that people can receive the cancer support they need to thrive.
