We Care About Your Emotional Health

Living with cancer, even surviving it, comes with a heavy emotional toll. Thankfully, that is a burden that no patient has to face alone at Valley Health. We provide a wide variety of cancer support resources to help patients deal with their issues and concerns with confidence and courage. Support services are known to reduce anxiety and emotional distress, preventing depression, and can help improve a patient’s overall quality of life from diagnosis, throughout and after treatment. Many of our support services can benefit caregivers as well.
