We are proud to be working in partnership with the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) to deliver mental health support.
Getting diagnosed with a life-long condition like PH is understandably stressful, to put it mildly. The uncertainty and lack of control can lead to a number of mental health issues, not least anxiety. Understanding what anxiety is and how its symptoms can be managed, allows those faced with a diagnosis of PH the ability to focus on what’s truly important: how to move forward with their diagnosis and lead a fulfilled life.
Anxiety UK and the PHA work closely to help PHA members who want to learn more about anxiety and how Anxiety UK can support them. The partnership provides additional support to those who are affected by anxiety, stress and anxiety based depression whether that be someone with a diagnosis of PH or their loved one.
Anxiety UK are providing members of PHA UK with a variety of services and resources including:
- A dedicated helpline service
- An email support service (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Assessment and therapy provision for those experiencing anxiety
- Training & resources for PHA UK staff and members
