A cancer diagnosis of any kind takes a toll on the mental health of those who receive it; feelings of anxiety, fear, and depression are common while adjusting to the uncertainty of a new life with cancer. World Mental Health day is October 10, and this year Save Your Skin Foundation is hoping to shed some light on the affects of a melanoma diagnosis on the mental health of patients and survivors.
By taking our survey anonymously, as either a patient or survivor, you will be providing us with insight regarding the need for emotional support among those diagnosed with melanoma, how these needs change in the transition period from patient to survivor, and how to provide the best support possible for anyone in this process.
We appreciate your taking this survey before September 25, and hope that you will share it with anyone you may know who has experienced a melanoma diagnosis. With your help, we hope to improve the ways we address mental health support for melanoma patients. Stay tuned for the report we will compile from the survey! The survey is now closed, thank you for your feedback.
