Around one in three people have a long-term physical illness, and of these people, around one in three also struggle with mental health problems like depression and anxiety.
Symptoms such as pain, fatigue, disability, and uncertainty around treatment, can all contribute to mental health problems, which in turn can worsen physical symptoms.
On Integrating Care - Depression, Anxiety and Physical Illness at FutureLearn , you’ll learn how mental and physical health interact. You’ll look in-depth at the relationship between physical and mental illness, and improve your ability to recognise symptoms and find help.
