Psychological and emotional health: everyone’s business 

Various dates from March to April 2024

About this course

Our recent surveys have demonstrated that mental health issues in people who have acquired spinal cord injury are of great concern to people with spinal cord injury and healthcare professionals alike.  

This module explores the links between physical psychological and emotional health, the effect of SCI on quality of life and explores strategies for helping to mitigate psychological distress. 

Delegates

The aim of these sessions is to provide practitioners with an understanding of the psychological and emotional challenges that can be experienced by a person with a spinal cord injury (SCI) and to build on existing knowledge and experience of how to have sensitive conversations with people affected by spinal cord injury, their family and friends.
