Description

‘Supporting the Mental Health of People Living with a Life Limiting Illness’ by Dr. Regina Mc Quillan, Palliative Medicine Consultant, St Francis Hospice and Beaumont Hospital

This lecture explores how living with a life-limiting illness can affect the emotional and mental wellbeing of the person with the illness and those close to them. It will discuss what might be considered normal responses, and what might be considered abnormal and may require support from counsellors or health professionals. It will also consider how pre-existing mental health problems may be affected.
