Chronic Medical Illness


If you are struggling with stress, anxiety, or depression associated with an ongoing health concern, you are not alone. 

Millions of people in the U.S. live with some form of chronic illness. Chronic illness is defined as a medical condition which persists for at least one year. Some of the more common chronic conditions include diabetes, fibromyalgia, heart conditions, cancer, arthritis, and HIV/AIDS. Individuals living with chronic health issues may experience a variety of associated conditions with their mental, physical, and emotional health. Speaking with a counselor may provide needed support and a safe place to express thoughts and feelings.
