Mental health & coping

A metastatic breast cancer diagnosis can feel like an emotional roller coaster, and we know how important it is to have supportive connections you can trust. On these pages, we’ll guide you through how to build your own emotional support team, including people in your life, your healthcare team, and others living with metastatic breast cancer. We’ll share ways to recognize whether you’re feeling anxiety or depression, and how to get support from your healthcare team or a professional therapist. You can also learn about complementary therapies such as meditation, yoga, and guided imagery that can reduce stress and help you find calm.
