Coping

There might be days when things just get you down. Sometimes it is difficult to talk to family members or those that are around you every day. A psychologist might be good to talk to about how you are feeling and provide you with information on some ways to cope.

Psychologists can find services that may be more appropriate for your needs such as another psychologist with specific skills, a social worker or a self-help group.

A psychologist can also help you, your family or other carers when adjusting to a new diagnosis and when considering how life may change.

Exercise can provide mental benefits as well as physical. It may lift your mood, distract from worries, provide social support (if you join a group program) and may help you sleep better. An exercise physiologist can find the best type of exercise for you.
