Depression and Heart Disease

Posted on March 19, 2018

Along with a diagnosis of heart disease, members sometimes experience anxiety or depression. Many factors, such as feeling unwell, having to change eating or exercise habits, or even managing new medications can contribute to feeling anxious or depressed.

On MyHeartDiseaseTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with heart disease, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Anxiety and depression are a commonly discussed topic.
