Croí Galway webinar on cardiovascular disease

Public meeting on Zoom to discuss emotional recovery involved in post cardiac events or a diagnosis of CDV

The emotional recovery involved in post cardiac events or after receiving a diagnosis of cardiovascular disease, will be the subject of a free webinar taking place next week.

Croí, the Heart and Stroke Charity, and leading experts - Noelle O'Keeffe, senior counselling psychologist and professional coach, Tallaght University Ireland; and Dr Lisa Hynes, health psychologist and head of health programmes, Croí - will discuss this issue on Zoom on Thursday, August 26, from 7pm to 8pm.

“It is normal to feel down or depressed after a cardiac event like a heart attack, a heart surgery, or procedure, or a new diagnosis of cardiovascular disease,” said Dr Hynes. “Many people with CVD will experience psychological distress, particularly depression. With support and treatment, it is possible to recover from depression and take care of your heart health.”
