On Tuesday, October 18 our Online Women’s Support Group will welcome Jessica Bass, Lead Integrative Therapist at Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, New York, and Erin Hines, LMSW. The women’s support group hour will open up to questions and comments about all aspects of mental health – both as it pertains to the prostate cancer journey and to the stresses and anxieties of everyday life.
As we try to do on the support group calls, Jessica and Erin will focus on the importance of recognizing and flagging up mental health issues and, if deemed to be of value, how and where one goes about reaching out for one-on-one professional help.
