Discussion Series: Mental Health After Treatment
May 12 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EDT
Stupid Cancer’s newest program is Discussion Series: a month-long deep dive into crucial AYA topics with weekly sessions. Each ninety-minute online workshop will focus on a different aspect of the overall topic, featuring a presentation and small group discussions. Attendees are encouraged to participate in all four sessions but are not required to do so. Attendance at each session will be capped at 25 participants, with priority to those who register for all four weeks.
The first 30 minutes of the session will be a recorded presentation to be shared on our website as a mini-webinar available to our full community. The final hour will be a confidential discussion section and will not be recorded.
Our first topic is Mental Health After Treatment. This series is limited to survivors and patients only.
Discussion Two: “Who Am I Now?” with Elana Miller, MD
After a transformative experience like cancer, it may feel like you are a different person. It can be challenging to make sense of this new post-cancer identity. How do you navigate your old relationships from your new perspective? How can you get accustomed to physical changes to your body? This discussion will bring together adolescent and young adult cancer patients and survivors to explore new identities together.
