Psychologists provide crisis intervention, behavioral therapy and family support. Children’s mental health is just as important as their physical health. Psychologists help young cancer patients, their parents and siblings understand their emotions and work through challenges in positive and appropriate ways. It’s not always obvious when a child is struggling emotionally, but recognizing the symptoms and seeking early and effective mental health services are important for long-term health.
Our mental health care is fully integrated within each patient’s unique treatment plan. Our psychology team works closely with the medical team to attend to our patients’ emotional, behavioral and developmental needs throughout their journey, including inpatient and outpatient therapy.
