Caring for Your Mind After Cancer Treatment

Finishing your cancer treatment can sometimes feel lonely or isolating after getting used to the many trips to treatment and interactions with your care team. You may feel anxious or depressed about the possibility of a cancer recurrence, or have trouble concentrating or remembering things because of your cancer treatments. You are not alone. Support groups, classes, and retreats are available especially for survivors, along with psych-oncology specialists.

  • Gilda’s Club/Lake House: support groups, wellness programs and social groups for adults who have completed cancer treatment.
  • Imerman Angels: A program that provides personalized connections that enable one-on-one support among cancer fighters, survivors, and caregivers. Phone: (866) 463-7626.
  • Talk with your care team about a referral to a psych-oncologist or oncology social worker.
