About AUTHENTICITY: Cancer and Your Mental Health Summit (MHS20) “How are you holding up?” Emotionally, not just physically. This is an incredibly important question that isn’t asked nearly often enough during the cancer journey. Cancer takes a toll on the mind, heart, and spirit as much as it does on the body. The GRYT Health team knows this because we’ve lived it!
We are cancer survivors and caregivers who have personally suffered our way through anxiety, depression, PTSD, identity struggles, and a host of other not-fun emotional side effects. Sharing knowledge is at the core of our company mission; we’re dedicated to helping people just like you who may currently be dealing with these issues.
GRYT Health is proud to bring the cancer community together for an online summit focused on coping strategies that can work for YOU to improve your mental and spiritual health. Are you a caregiver? We encourage you to participate, as well. The summit will help you better understand how to communicate and empathize with your friend, family member, spouse or co-worker as they go through their cancer journey.
On Saturday, April 25, 2020, the Authenticity: Cancer and Your Mental Health Summit will bring to you (via your computer, tablet, or phone) a day of sessions presented by leading mental health experts. Interspersed throughout the day will be brief relaxation activities for you to incorporate into your life.
Because we’ve been through it, we know how emotionally tough the cancer journey can be. Our goal with MHS20 is to give you a day focused solely on you and your mental health. Because your emotional well-being is just as important as your physical well-being.
We look forward to your participation on April 25th. The GRYT Cancer Community will be there to support you. This movement, along with new technology, new drugs, and new thinking are revolutionizing possibilities in cancer care. Healthcare decision-making cannot be left to professionals alone. Each of us must play our part in improving outcomes for a better future.
