Blog For Mental Health 2014: The Emotional Impact of Breast Cancer

mentalhealthblogdayToday is Mental Health Blog Day 2014, a Mental Health Month initiative from the American Psychological Association. As a contribution to this day, we wanted to acknowledge the emotional impact of breast cancer, in addition to sharing resources and letting you know that you are not alone.  

Whether you just heard the words “you have breast cancer,” are years beyond treatment or living with metastatic disease, it is likely that you experienced or continue to experience a range of complex emotions due to this major life change. At LBBC, we are dedicated to helping you cope with or manage these feelings by connecting you with trusted breast cancer information and a community of support.

In recognition of Mental Health Month and Mental Health Blog Day 2014, we wanted to highlight programs, resources and inspiring personal stories by men and women affected by breast cancer.

First and foremost, we have a toll-free Breast Cancer Helpline (888-753-52220) answered live from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. ET. Staffed by volunteers who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, our Helpline will connect you with someone who cares and knows what you’re feeling. Call today or when you’re ready!

We also have some upcoming programs as well as podcasts and presentations of previous events, many of which you may find helpful:

We also have incredible stories from women who had to navigate these complex emotions. Read the following stories from this blog and lbbc.org:

The stories above are just the tip of the iceberg of inspiring stories by people like you who are affected by breast cancer. Check out lbbc.org and this blog to read more blog posts, first person stories and profiles!

What resources or personal stories do you recommend to help your friends with the emotional impact of breast cancer?
