Psychological Support

Psychological support is a part of our services to our members and their families.

 

What is Psychological Support?

Challenges are a part of everyday life. Psychological health helps each individual to meet difficulties and obstacles and find satisfaction in their lives. Often, an individual or their family feel great pressure about how to deal with difficulties, which can affect several important aspects of their lives (school, relationships, work, illness, etc.) and create fear, insecurity, anxiety, sadness, feelings of isolation and so on.

 

The psychological effect of a chronic illness is a common phenomenon, affecting both people who suffer from it and their families. A chronic disease affects not only our body, but also our quality of life.  The role of psychological support is to relieve the person, to support and strengthen them, to improve skills and ultimately to help to develop a different perspective on issues that might be of concern. Psychological support is not only about issues related to a chronic disease, but also helps to cope with daily problems.
