Hi, my sister has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and is really depressed, what help us out there for depression?

  • Hi Hope and Healing welcome to the forum. Is this a recent diagnosis for your sister as its not too unexpected for people to be very low in mood and sad when such a diagnosis is given but that is, as I said to be expected. However, a GP would need to diagnose a clinical depression, which is different to a low moed etc  to check if that is what that is and if it needs treatment.
