Do you feel down since receiving your cancer diagnosis?

Many people feel sad or down after being diagnosed with cancer, during and after treatment. It is perfectly normal to experience depression during your cancer journey. Know that help is available to you. To find out what resources are available to you and your family, please view Depression Services Guide - Community and Online Services.

In addition to these community resources, we offer Cancer Care Counselling.
