Psychological Wellbeing in a Long Term Condition

Psychological Wellbeing refers to your over all functioning in relation to your feelings. It is about how we think, how we feel, how we behave, how life affects us and how we cope with it, how we engage with others and the choices that we make. The key components to positive psychological well being are positive emotions, sense of purpose, engagement in activities, relationships, accomplishment and achievement.

Common mood problems include depression, anxiety, anger and stress. Below, you can find a presentation on ways in which you can help manage your mood

 

The NHSGGC Health and Wellbeing Directory is a gateway to information about a wide range health improvement and wellbeing services provided by  NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and our partner organisations. 

 

This page is to provide general advice and understanding and does not provide medical advice. Should you, or a family member feel that any of these symptoms are having a significant impact on your life or a cause for concern, we would strongly recommend discussing with your GP or healthcare professional.
