On the 16th we’ll cover Mental Health and Chronic Disease inspired by this panel of familiar and fabulous patient advocates: http://medicinex.stanford.edu/conf/conference/event/705
Guiding our discussion will be the following Topic (T:) Questions:
T1: What was your initial reaction to receiving a chronic diagnosis? sadness/anger/relief/etc?
T2: Did you seek emotional support right away, not until later, haven’t formally sought it out?T3: What things do you find helpful in reducing stress and building resilience? What are some resources?T4: A chronic diagnosis can mean living w/ an acute sense of uncertainty. How have you adjusted in the face of this?T5: Where are your “safe spaces” to share how you are really doing? Tips on finding and building such spaces?T6: How can doctors and the healthcare system better incorporate mental health into chronic disease management?
