Discussion Series: Mental Health After Treatment
May 5 @ 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 One: “Post-Treatment Blues” with Phoenix Muhammad, LMFT
You might expect to be overjoyed after you ring the bell, but for many patients, the most difficult time in their cancer journey comes after treatment. The transition back to “normal” life can be very disorienting. What does normal even mean after cancer? What side effects will linger? Are you fatigued or depressed? How do you handle pressure from family and friends to “move on already”? This intimate discussion will provide a safe space for you to explore this confusing time with other adolescent and young adult cancer patients and survivors.
