Original Air Date: March 24th, 12:00 – 1:00 pm ET
Individuals with mental health and substance use challenges have lower-than-average cancer screening rates and are at greater risk of developing colorectal cancer than the general population.
Integrating conversations around mental wellbeing and colorectal cancer in mental health and substance use treatment settings encourages cancer prevention and provides better psychosocial support for cancer patients, survivors and caregivers.
