If possible, find a professional (psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, counselor, therapist) who understands the emotional side of cancer. You can do that by:
Asking at your cancer center if they have someone you can talk with
Contacting the American Society of Psychosocial Oncology (APOS). Psychosocial oncology is concerned with the social, psychological, emotional, and spiritual side of cancer. Through APOS’s Helpline at 1-866-276-7443, you can find what cancer-informed counseling is available in your area.
