When you or a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, it can seem as if your world has been turned upside down.
At Metro Health, we know that a cancer diagnosis doesn’t just affect a particular part of your body, it impacts many facets of your life including your mood and the way you see yourself. It impacts your family as well. That’s why we offer psychological services to all patients and their family members as part of our comprehensive care.
Our fully-licensed psychologist will work alongside your oncologist and nurse to support you through your cancer treatment and beyond.
You can use these services at any point throughout your care but it may prove especially helpful at the start treatment to discuss how to best preserve your physical and emotional well-being.
You can meet with our psychologist alone, with family members present, or with others on a similar journey in one of Metro Health’s quarterly group sessions that cover stress, coping with cancer, and relaxation. These sessions are free and also open to non-Metro Health patients. Many insurance plans will cover individual and family sessions and financial assistance is available.
For more information or to register for a session, visit the Cancer Center at Metro Health Village or call (616) 252-8100.
