Stupid Cancer’s newest program is Discussion Series: a month-long deep dive into crucial AYA topics with weekly sessions. The first topic is Mental Health After Treatment. This series is limited to survivors and patients only.

Each ninety-minute online workshop focuses on a different aspect of the overall topic, featuring a presentation and small group discussions. Attendees are encouraged to participate in all four sessions but are not required to do so. Attendance at each session will be capped at 25 participants, with priority to those who register for all four weeks.

Discussion Three: “Survivor’s Guilt” with Ashley Williams, LCSW

After surviving cancer, many adolescents and young adults face a new and uncomfortable mental health challenge: survivor’s guilt. While processing and coping with the trauma of your own experiences, it can feel overwhelming to confront the grief and bereavement of AYA friends you may have lost. You may experience imposter syndrome for not feeling the “right” way after cancer or be frustrated with friends and family who don’t understand. In this discussion for adolescent and young adult cancer survivors, learn coping strategies and navigate these complex issues with peers that get it.
