Counseling for Chronic Health Problems

A special field of mental health care called Health Psychology focuses on helping people with physical disease, illness, and injury. Treatment focuses on understanding how people react to, cope with, and manage their physical condition. Often, symptom management or recovery can be influenced by everyday behavior change and social supports. Therapists can help patients improve their compliance to recommended lifestyle changes, cope with changes associated with an illness, and deal with negative emotions that may be present as the result of an illness or injury.
