The Heart Foundation Supporting Young Hearts program is running a free, interactive forum on managing your emotional health and wellbeing.  Heart disease has an emotional toll, but with the right tools and support, you can overcome emotional challenges, and thrive. 

The online forum features a young Australian with heart disease, a clinical psychologist and a heart health expert discussing:

  • Emotional wellbeing for cardiac patients 
  • Tips for dealing with fear and worry 
  • Tools for managing anxiety 
  • Experiences of trauma after a cardiac event 
  • The latest on COVID-19 for heart patients 
  • There will be an opportunity for interactive virtual activities and a Q & A session.
  • Carers, family members or a support person are welcome to attend.
