Looking after your mental health
Living with a long-term lung condition can affect many aspects of your life. You’ll have physical symptoms, like breathlessness. But living with a lung condition can also affect your mental wellbeing and how you feel.
You are not alone. In this information we explain why mental health can be affected when you have a lung condition, the different mental health issues you might face and ways you can manage or treat them. We also have information on where you can go for more advice and support.
If you have more questions or just want to chat, call our helpline on 03000 030 555
