How can we prevent poor mental health, anxiety and depression during and after cancer treatment?
While great progress has been made in researching cancer causes and treatments, there has been little research conducted into mental health during cancer and how best to support mental health and wellbeing.
Through interviews with people with lived experience of using cancer services and cancer support providers working in Scotland, this qualitative research provides an insight into emotional and mental health during cancer. This investigation focuses on the negative mental health impacts of cancer, and reveals how effective support can be delivered.
