Mental Health Among People with Chronic Health Conditions
October 26 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Mental health difficulties, such as anxiety and depression, are common among people with chronic health conditions, and for understandable reasons. At the same time, common mental health difficulties can impact the management of chronic health conditions, and peoples’ day-to-day lives with these conditions. Unfortunately, many people face barriers accessing effective psychological treatment and care, which can help people to adjust to life with a chronic health condition. New digital mental health services and treatments are an emerging resource for people living with chronic health conditions.
In this Webinar, Blake Dear from MindSpot will be joining us to review the development and results from a new digital psychological program for people with chronic health conditions (the Chronic Conditions Course) now freely available via Australia’s MindSpot Clinic.
