Psychiatrists, social workers and nurses in the Psychosocial Oncology Clinic offer specialized care for meeting the emotional, family and social challenges of fighting cancer. Individual and Group Therapy services offer help for patients and family members who seek assistance with coping, management of depression and anxiety, family communication or other social-emotional challenges.

Routine screening for symptoms of depression are conducted by nurses and social workers during regular oncology clinic visits. To determine if you need further help with depressive symptoms, complete this screening form and bring it with you to your next University of Arizona Cancer Center clinic visit. The social worker on your Multidisciplinary Team will review your score and assist you with finding the care you need.

Individual appointments for psychiatric assessment and treatment can be scheduled with Karen Weihs, MD, or Mark Gilbert, MD, by calling (520) 694-CURE (2873).
