Mental Health Care for Cancer Patients and Their Loved Ones

Integrating psychological well-being into the whole-person care of people impacted by cancer.

Forge Health’s partnership with Thyme Care provides integrated and coordinated mental health care to cancer patients, their families, and caregivers.

Mental health issues are often overlooked when it comes to cancer care. By taking the time to address the variety of psychological, behavioral, emotional, and social issues that arise for cancer patients and their loved ones, we can help improve their quality of life and make the experience of cancer easier.

How We Help

We’re here to help you navigate the emotional roller coaster of cancer, from the moment of diagnosis. Everyone copes differently, and our experienced clinicians will help you find the path that’s right for you.

Understanding your feelings and experiences is essential to helping you manage your physical and emotional wellbeing. Forge Health providers deliver care in a welcoming and safe environment, offering a range of services to support your needs.

Everyone’s journey is unique, especially with the ever-changing nature of cancer treatment. That’s why we’re dedicated to offering flexible care that accommodates your evolving schedule. Our clinicians are available both in-person and virtually, so you can engage with them at one of our office locations or from the comfort of your own home – whichever works best for you. No matter where you are, our commitment to you remains the same – we will be there for you when and where you need us.
