Mental Health Disorders
People with chronic pain have a greater likelihood of experiencing depression
and anxiety, and being depressed or anxious can lead to higher sensitivities of
pain. This difficult cycle can be
stopped, and fortunately there are resources and tools that can give practical
guidance to improve your depression and anxiety and other mental health issues,
and to help you manage your chronic pain.
Physical health also
can contribute to improved mental health. For more information and
additional practical tools for mental health, explore our sections on Self-Management and Treatment and our webinars on mental health and chronic pain.
We have gathered a variety of evidence-based resources for the following mental health disorders. There are resources on condition overviews, prevention, treatments, work accommodation, WWDPI related activities, and more.
