Depression

The impact of being diagnosed with PSC can affect quality of life, future plans and life goals. Everyone deals differently with his or her life experience.

How can I deal with low mood and depression?

  • Positive thinking
  • Healthy lifestyle
  • Exercise
  • Chatting/support groups/psychological input/cognitive behaviour therapy/mindfulness etc

If none of the above improve mood, a GP consultation may be necessary to gauge mood and prescribe medication accordingly.
