Pediatric brain tumors and current treatments not only affect children physically, they also can severely impact patients’ and survivors’ emotional well-being and mental health. Anxiety and depression, difficulties with regulating emotions, and changes in behavior and personality are just a few of the challenges children and their families experience.

Learn how pediatric brain tumors affect children’s emotions, as well as concrete strategies to help manage feelings and behaviors at home, school, and in the community by joining us Thursday, May 9 for a special Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week webinar.
