Mental Health Counseling Services
The Mental Health Counseling Services provide much needed support and counseling to children diagnosed and in treatment for childhood cancer in New Mexico. In some cases, issues arise after treatment and the Children’s Cancer Fund provides counseling services to those young adults as well. Children being treated at New Mexico Pediatric Oncology facilities are eligible for mental health services. Children participate in art therapy and sandtray therapy as a way of expressing feelings and emotions that are often difficult to identify as a child and while battling cancer. The Children’s Cancer Fund counseling office is safe, supportive and cheerful where all children are greeted with a hug and a smile. Shunnae Love, CCFNM’s Clinic Liaison is a certified Mental Health Counselor.
