Support for anxiety

Helping you manage anxiety with PH

At the PHA UK we recognise that pulmonary hypertension can impact mental wellbeing as well as physical health.

In 2019, we conducted a major survey which showed 53% of people diagnosed with PH have experienced or been diagnosed with anxiety or depression – yet only around half of these people (58%) had asked for professional help.

It’s important to understand that you are not on your own, and our resources and support tools are designed to help you take control of problematic feelings and emotions.

Anxiety can be experienced by those around the person with the diagnosis too, so we would encourage family and loved ones to also make use of the support available.
