Emotional Well-Being

Share

Hydrocephalus can be overwhelming and emotionally challenging. It is a chronic condition that requires ongoing management, which has an impact on the emotional and mental well being of the person living with the condition as well as their loved ones. Experiencing periods of sadness, grief, or anxiety due to the uncertainty and challenges of the condition is normal, but if these negative emotions don’t fade, depression and persistent anxiety should be treated. We have resources to help you cope and learn to manage your emotional well-being, which is vital to your overall health.
