Emotional Health Of Cancer Caregivers May Affect Mental Health Of Loved Ones They Are Caring For

HealthDay (6/2, Dallas) reports that the results of a 900-participant study published June 1 in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention suggests that “the emotional health of cancer caregivers may affect the mental health of the loved ones they are caring for.” The study found that “when their husbands, wives or partners experience symptoms of depression, cancer survivors are more likely to develop depression themselves, say researchers at the US National Cancer Institute (NCI).”
