Mental health seminar for PSA CPSU NSW members

All members are invited to attend a webinar on Nurturing mental health during the cancer journey on Wednesday 19 June 2024.

With a cancer diagnosis comes feelings of depression, fear and anxiety for the future. This is a common and very normal response for everyone impacted by cancer. Often when someone faces a cancer diagnosis, they are thrown into a frenzy of oncology appointments, treatment options and an information overload on how to look after themselves. Unfortunately, the mental health of that patient is often overlooked as is the mental wellbeing of those around them.

In Osara’s webinar on nurturing mental health during the cancer journey, we will help to demystify the challenges associated and help attendees to understand the impact on mental health of patients during different cancer stages and strategies to help.

The webinar is presented by PSA CPSU NSW partner Osara Health, which provides support for members and their immediate family members affected by cancer.

Date Wednesday 19 June 2024
Time 12:00pm-1:00pm

Osara Health provides care to people and organisations affected by cancer using expertise, empathy and technology. Participants gain access to digital tools, dedicated health coaching and evidence-based educational resources, assisting them to feel supported, informed and in control of health outcomes and their wellbeing.

Support comes in two forms:

Cancer Coach by Osara Cancer Coach is an education, support and behaviour-change program designed by oncologists to help people take back control of their cancer care and achieve better outcomes.

Cancer Caregivers by Osara Cancer Caregivers is designed to equip people with the support, information and skills to best look after their loved one living with cancer and improve their clinical outcomes.

Both programs are delivered flexibly and confidentially over 6-12 weeks through a mix of telephone calls with a Health Coach, via email and by using an app. When members enrol, they will be contacted by a Health Coach who will walk them through how the course will work.
