Counselling & support
Dealing with cancer can cause intense emotions. Many people with cancer will experience emotional distress.
We have tools to help you:
- Check out the Resources tab above. We have handouts, videos and more to help you manage stress, deal with loss, and more.
Support programs: We have a number of support programs from art therapy to cancer-specific support groups. Programs are available to all people with cancer in B.C. Many are virtual. Check out what is available on our Support Programs page.
Counselling: Your healthcare team includes counselling. Our counsellors can assess your situation, give support and help you find services or programs. You or your family member can book an appointment to speak with a counsellor. Contact Patient & Family Counselling at your centre. You can also talk to your doctor about a referral for Psychiatry Services.
BC Cancer Library: Our librarians are here to help you find the information you need. Check out the library catalogue or speak to a librarian.
