Managing chronic disease: The mental health connection
Chronic disease not only affects an individual’s physical health but can take a toll on one’s mental health. Searching for a diagnosis, going through treatment, trying to manage pain, and the socioeconomic strain of care can all have a significant impact on one’s stress levels and mental well- being. Mental Health America has partnered with the National Pancreas Foundation to further explore this connection in order to better understand, address, and educate on the impacts chronic disease can have on one’s mental health.
In this webinar, we will hear from professionals working within various areas of chronic disease on the connection to mental health that they have seen or studied. We will also hear from an individual with lived experience on how their diagnosis has impacted their life.
Join us for this free, 75-minute webinar where we will:
- Gain knowledge from experts on the connection between chronic disease, quality of life, and mental health
- Explore how different chronic diseases impact the mental health of those living with the disease and their caregivers
- Hear firsthand from an individual with lived experience about their mental health journey while living with chronic disease
This webinar was made possible through a partnership with the National Pancreas Foundation.
