Stress, anxiety, sadness and anger are common feelings following a breast cancer diagnosis. However, if these feelings are intense or continue for a long time, or if you’re struggling to function from day to day, you may be experiencing anxiety or depression. This fact sheet, developed by BCNA and beyondblue, explains the links between anxiety, depression and breast cancer, the signs and symptoms of anxiety and depression, current treatments and how to help yourself or someone close to you.
