Emotional Support

At the Center for Cancer Care, we know how emotionally challenging cancer can be, and we make sure you have access to the mental health services you need. Cancer diagnosis and treatment can impact patients’ and their caregivers’ mental health: you might feel anxious, depressed, angry, or that you’ve lost control.

Our social worker is available for bedside counseling, and can also connect you to additional mental health counseling, support groups, and other social services. 

If you are a patient or caregiver in need of emotional support, please contact our licensed clinical social worker Robin Brickey at (315) 261-5015

Cancer.gov offers strategies and resources for coping with the emotional impact of cancer. 

The Association of Oncology Social Work offers resources for patients, caregivers, and families. 

APOS offers support for people affected by cancer, including a toll-free helpline. 

I start by just meeting with them and asking them their story.
