Coping with Stress and Anxiety: An Open Discussion
ZOOM video conference 1-2pm
Coping with Stress and Anxiety: An Open Discussion

WHEN: Tuesday, December 15, 1-2 pm NY time
WHERE: ZOOM video conference

Open to people nationwide who have or have had breast, ovarian or gynecological cancer. Pre-registration is required. To register, call Support Connection, 914-962-6402 or 800-532-4290. Must register no later than 5 pm (NY time) on Mon., Dec. 14.

This will be an open discussion on coping with anxiety and stress while also dealing with cancer and the COVID-19 pandemic.

A cancer diagnosis brings a rollercoaster of physical and emotional challenges. Regardless of where you are in your journey, there is anxiety and stress to manage. The unprecedented times we are living in add to the sense of uncertainty and lack of control. Coping during these times requires even greater resilience and support. Join us for an open discussion where participants can share experiences and openly talk with others about these issues.

This is not an educational program; it is a discussion group facilitated by a Support Connection Peer Counselor. The discussion will include some strategies and resources for self-care and for managing anxiety and stress. The program will conclude with listening to a guided meditation recording, created for Support Connection by our weekly meditation instructor.
