Mental health and cancer
You might have come to this information because you’re struggling with your mental health. Whether you are someone with cancer or a carer for someone with cancer, we want you to know that it is common to struggle with your mental health when dealing with a cancer diagnosis. What you might be experiencing is a normal response to a very stressful life experience.
If you have an existing mental health problem, you might find it harder to cope during this time.
We don’t have all the answers to help you feel better, but we listened to the experiences and gathered advice of people who've had cancer and struggled with their mental health. We used their feedback to help shape and develop the information on this page.
