Cancer

Psychological distress is a significant and ongoing problem for cancer patients and their relatives. Those living with cancer are affected from the time of diagnosis, during their treatment and beyond.

Cancer can lead to a range of emotions, including:

  • Shock/disbelief
  • Fear/uncertainty
  • Guilt
  • Grief/sadness
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger/frustration
  • Feelings of isolation
  • Vulnerability/helplessness
