Health Feature: Depression among Cancer Survivors

View descriptionShare

Being diagnosed with cancer and being a survivor is an emotional experience. Some people may go through a period of grief before being able to accept their diagnosis. Others may become depressed and anxious.

With more than 30% of cancer patients diagnosed with depression, the South African Society of Psychiatrists calls on National Cancer Survivors Day (4 June), for greater awareness of patients suffering from mental health disorders.

Guest: Dr Michelle King - Specialist Psychiatrist and Member of the South African Society of Psychiatrists
