The cost of cancer care can cause a major financial burden for people diagnosed with cancer and their families. Even more so for those among the behavioral health population since financial hardships can often lead to poor mental health and physical outcomes. That is why the National Behavioral Health Network for Tobacco & Cancer Control is looking at how behavioral health providers can implement practices that may help alleviate some of this financial burden and therefore improve health outcomes.
During the webinar, learn how you, as a behavioral health provider, can provide clients with financial resources, such as health care coverage and national organization support services, over the course of the cancer continuum.
