Chronic Disease

Chronic Disease

 

A chronic disease is a disease that is persistent or long-lasting in nature. The term chronic is usually applied when the course of the disease lasts for more than three months. Common chronic diseases include asthma, cancer, diabetes and HIV/AIDS. Chronic illness can bring on bouts of depression, which, in turn, can lead to a run-down physical condition that interferes with successful treatment of the chronic condition. Research has shown that psychotherapy can help break this cycle. Our mental health experts will help you learn how to live with the physical realities of the illness, maintain emotional balance, cope with the treatments involved and manage any distressing symptoms.
