Physical health
10 December, 2012

Physical health problems can lead to depression and anxiety. A typical response can be disbelief, despair and a sense of lack of direction in life. Some use the diagnosis as an opportunity to make changes in their life, but may need some support in making these changes.

Both mental and physical health problems not only affect the person who has the health problem, but their family even friends and colleagues. The impact of health problems on the family can be overlooked by many but the family may be the main source of emotional and physical support for the individual.
