World Mental Health Day

October 10th is World Mental Health Day, a global campaign by the World Health Organization (WHO) aimed at raising awareness of the importance of mental health.

Mental health is just as important as the health of any vital organ in our body. Living with kidney disease may sometimes be challenging and you may experience different levels of emotional struggle.

Especially in the beginning, you and your loved ones may feel overwhelmed by the situation. Feelings of hopelessness or a certain fear of the future may appear.

On World Mental Health Day we want to remind you that it is ok to be anxious about dialysis treatment. Talk to your clinical team and your friends and family members about the thoughts that bother you.
