Por: FutureLearn . en: , ,


Explore the connection between depression, anxiety, and physical illness

Around one in three people have a long-term physical illness, and of these people, around one in three also struggle with mental health problems like depression and anxiety.

Symptoms such as pain, fatigue, disability, and uncertainty around treatment, can all contribute to mental health problems, which in turn can worsen physical symptoms.

On this course, you’ll learn how mental and physical health interact. You’ll look in-depth at the relationship between physical and mental illness, and improve your ability to recognise symptoms and find help.

This course is for anyone affected by physical and mental illness, their families and carers, and those working in healthcare.
