Shared Experiences: Coping with cancer

Featured Image

Coping with any physical or mental illness is never easy to deal with. A cancer diagnosis comes with plenty of fear around the uncertainty of what's to come, misunderstandings of what information to accept, when and how to question your diagnosis, and of course, managing your emotions and of those around you. 

This Shared Experiences episode features David, a Northern Pass cyclist and a cancer survivor. David used Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness practices to combat the negative mental health impacts of his diagnosis which offered him new perspectives. He even found some unexpected opportunities following his cancer journey and turned his pain into purpose.

Brought to you by real people with real stories, our Shared Experiences series shines light on the mental health struggles we all commonly face. 1 in 5 people experience a mental illness in a given year and by the time someone reaches 40, the prevalence is 1 in 2 and many don't reach out for help.
 At MindBeacon, we strive to change that. Care to share your story and help others remember they're not alone? Reach out to community@mindbeacon.com to play your part in removing the stigma. 

If you're struggling, we're here to help. Reach out to us or visit us here to complete your assessment if you're ready to start your therapy journey.
