Keep Connected - Let's Talk About Meningitis and Health Anxiety

Struggling with worries and concerns about your health or those close to you?

Meningitis Now Online Support Events 2020 LB - Mental Health

Many of us will experience worries and concerns about our own health, or the health of others at some point in our lives - this is normal. For some people, this can become a preoccupation, which can significantly affect everyday life and cause a great deal of distress.

This is not uncommon following a serious and often devastating illness like meningitis. On top of this, the added stress of the current Covid-19 pandemic can make things worse.

Our Keep Connected - Let's Talk About Meningitis and Health Anxiety session will focus on:

  • increasing our understanding of anxiety and health concerns;
  • sharing our personal experiences as well as exploring difficult thoughts, feelings and physical sensations;
  • discussing tips and techniques for dealing with anxiety and health concerns.
