Emotional Support

Mindfulness and social support during illness enhances outcomes.

When the stress of a cancer diagnosis leads to trouble concentrating, trouble sleeping, feeling irritable, suffering stomach upsets, or even bouts of panic, SSM Health’s Cancer Care teams offer help beyond their immediate care including support groups and talk therapy for those in need.

Learning and practicing meditative mindfulness skills reduces stress, improves physical health, and quality of life. Talk with your oncologist to see if a referral to SSM Health’s Mindfulness program is right for you.
