Supporting our emotional health is just as vital as looking after our physical health whilst living with a congenital heart condition. Hospital stays, repeated medical procedures, changes in health and uncertainty about the future, all have an impact. It’s natural to have strong feelings in response to health challenges.

This section has a range of resources (including information/ apps/ podcasts/ self help guides etc) that you may find helpful.
