Managing a long-term condition such as diabetes, cardiac, respiratory and musculoskeletal conditions, chronic pain and fatigue syndrome, IBS, and medically unexplained symptoms, can lead to feelings of low mood, stress, and anxiety. This can make it more difficult to manage a long-term physical health condition. We aim to help you to take control over your physical health by supporting your mental health and helping you make adaptations to better manage your long-term condition.
