In this section, you'll find tips and information to help you talk about anxiety, depression, crises of spirituality and isolation with your friends, family and treatment team.

If You’re Having Anxiety or Depression

It’s normal to feel nervous, stressed or sad about metastatic breast cancer (MBC). When these symptoms become chronic, it’s called anxiety or depression. There are many ways to address your mental health, starting with talking to your health care provider.

Navigating Isolation

Feelings of isolation are common among people with MBC. Sometimes, it helps to get in touch with someone who is going through the same things as you.

Overcoming Crises of Spirituality

There’s no right or wrong way to feel about living with MBC, and everyone manages their feelings differently. Building a support system and having open dialogue about how you’re feeling can help.
