There are 400 new cancer cases in the Isle of Man every year. It is well known that cancer is the most dreaded diagnosis by members of the public. A proportion of cancer patients and their carers experience serious psychological problems which need expert intervention. Treatment of such psychological problems, in addition to improving the quality of life, has also been shown to improve outcomes of treatment, including survival.
At Manx Cancer Help we believe that looking after your emotional health and well-being is as important as caring for your physical health. When we feel emotionally well, we are better equipped to deal with the inevitable challenges of all aspects of lives. Good emotional health also gives us some control as to how we handle situations and helps us to be resilient.
