Mental health is an important part of overall health and well-being as you manage your blood cancer, from initial diagnosis through remission.

Recognizing how blood cancer might be affecting your mental health and practicing mindfulness and relaxation techniques or preparing a nutritious meal can help with managing stress and anxiety. For caregivers, especially, it is important to realize that having a self-care plan can indirectly help your loved ones with blood cancer as well.3


In addition to reviewing these resources, talk to your healthcare provider about your mental health and consider seeking support from a trained professional, as needed.
