Report: Ask How I Am: Supporting emotional health among people living with long term conditions
National Voices and Centre for Mental Health have co-produced a new report, Ask How I Am: Supporting emotional health among people living with long-term conditions. The report was produced with support from a range of long-term conditions charities. The launch event can be watched here.
Mental and physical health are closely related. People who live with long-term physical conditions are twice as likely to have poor mental health as those who do not. It is highly likely that this has increased further during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The report shows the impact long-term conditions can have on people, their relationships and jobs; what helps; what support is already available and works; and what needs to change to better emotionally support people living with long-term physical ill-health.
