Cancer Mind Care - a website to support people with cancer

Monday, 06th May 2024

This is a website I co-developed with my team at Peter Mac with the goal of  exploring ways to look after your mind when you are affected by cancer.

The Cancer Mind Care self-help online platform was developed and launched in 2021. It provides Australia’s first ‘one-stop-shop’ for tailored mental health support for people with cancer, their support persons, clinicians and First Nations peoples.

Our platform is designed to be a safe haven, offering free and accessible support. It's a non-threatening first step towards accessing cancer psychology support and services, all while maintaining your anonymity.

This project is a collaboration between the Western & Central Melbourne Integrated Cancer Service (WCMICS), the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and the Gippsland Regional Integrated Cancer Service (GRICS).
