Impact of cancer
Every year, another 23,000 young people have their world turned upside down by cancer, whether it’s a close family member’s diagnosis or their own. These young people are up to six times more likely to face mental health issues like depression and anxiety than their peers. Watch Canteen’s National Community Educator, Shae Chester, discuss the impact of cancer on families and what health professionals can do to help.
Canteen research
Canteen conducts internationally recognised research into the emotional and social impacts of cancer to ensure we truly understand how cancer is different in a young person’s world.
