Well on the Web is an extension of the programs available in the Wellspring Centres across the country, enabling those who live far from a physical centres, or those not well enough to leave their homes, with access to Wellspring’s special brand of care and support.

Pancreatic Cancer Short Term Professional Counselling

Persons diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and their loved ones face profound and difficult challenges (i.e., family, career, treatment) and must deal with these challenges in a state of emotional or psychological ‘crisis’. Short-Term Professional Counselling delivers timely access to a professional for an assessment of serious personal issues that may require a referral and long-term intervention that is beyond the purview of Wellspring’s mandate (e.g., psychiatric intervention; substance abuse program). The Short Term Professional Counselling program is intended to provide a way for members to be seen by a professional when:

  • a serious matter related to cancer is identified or suspected (e.g. clinical depression, suicidal thoughts)
  • a matter not directly related to cancer is identified (e.g. substance abuse, marital problems) and the person expresses a wish for help on that matter.

At this time, appointments are only available by telephone

To request a session with a professional counsellor related to pancreatic cancer, please complete the request form linked here. Wellspring will get back to you with an appointment very soon.

Wellspring is grateful to Pancreatic Cancer Canada for providing the funding to make these appointments available to those in need.
