A cancer diagnosis is scary, and while your focus may be on your physical health, your mental health may also be at risk. Many sufferers of cancer, radiation, or chemotherapy end up with mental disorders or challenges ranging from anxiety to depression, which can make life even harder.

Luckily, Mental Health Match can match you with a therapist who can help you manage the stress, fear, and angst surrounding a cancer diagnosis, oncology, and treatment. Wherever you are located in California from Alameda to Yucaipa or even Montclair, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.
