If you have just been diagnosed with breast cancer, the Guide to Understanding Your Emotions will help you make sense of what you are feeling. The seven sections of the brochure explain common (and not-so-common) emotions, signs of anxiety and depression, when to consult a healthcare professional, responding to your emotions, understanding your feelings after initial treatment ends and practical strategies for moving forward. The guide was reviewed by a team of healthcare professionals and women affected by breast cancer.
