Do you feel pressure to be positive when talking about cancer? Does the idea of talking about your cancer fears scare you? Have you been told to talk to someone?

Tune in to our on-demand session with Iris Mental Health Therapist, Jessica, and our Iris moderator for a discussion exploring myths related to mental health when dealing with a cancer diagnosis. We candidly discussed the considerations for working with a therapist for support around cancer-specific concerns.
