Hello! My name is Anthony Cavalier and I am graduate student studying clinical psychology. As a cancer survivor myself, I know from personal experience how emotionally challenging cancer and its treatment can be. In part to help make some positive meaning out of my own experience, I’m studying individuals’ attitudes toward, and need for, mental health services during this difficult time. With this in mind, would you please take a few minutes to answer this confidential survey? Please note that your name or identifying information will not appear anywhere in my dissertation or related papers. Thank you, and I will be happy to send the results of my research to anyone who is interested. I wish you all well on this journey.

The Association of Stigma and Self-Disclosure with Social Support, Mental Health, and Posttraumatic Growth Among Cancer Patients

This study examines experiences of living with cancer. You are being asked to complete a series of questionnaires that assess your experiences of stigma, self-disclosure, social support seeking and utilization, and mental health. In order to better understand how people experience cancer, we are interested in hearing the voices of cancer survivors. You will qualify for the study if you are 18 years old or older, have been diagnosed with any type of cancer six to eighteen months prior to participation in the study, and are currently post-treatment. The entire study will take about 45 minutes to complete. Your participation is completely voluntary and if you are uncomfortable at any time, you are welcome to stop answering the questions. Upon completing the survey, you will have the opportunity to voluntarily provide your email address in order to enter a drawing to win a $100 Amazon gift card.

Thank you for considering your participation. The study is confidential.
Please feel free to send this study to others who may qualify.
