It is common to struggle with sadness, anger, fear, and anxiety during cancer
treatment and survivorship. These feelings can have an impact on your well-being,
quality of sleep, response to pain, appetite, and physical recovery. The WVU Cancer
Institute offers mental health services to patients with cancer and caregivers.

Our team includes a psychiatrist and therapists with a special interest in working with
patients with cancer. Psychiatrists are medical doctors who are able to diagnose and
treat mental health concerns and prescribe medications as part of a treatment plan if
needed. Therapists come from a variety of educational backgrounds and are skilled in
talk therapy. Many people find it helpful to meet with both a psychiatrist and therapist
during cancer treatment and survivorship.

Conditions we treat and services we offer include:

  • Anxiety
  • Caregiver support
  • Cognitive changes
  • Depression
  • Difficulty coping
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Grief
  • Non-medication treatment of pain
  • Sleep problems
