Does anyone else’s MS ‘Team’ (Neurologist; MS Nurse; Occupational Therapist etc) include a Mental Health Professional? Am wondering if this is regional, a postcode lottery, or something that simply doesn’t exist.
I keep reading about the importance of looking after one’s mental/emotional health and how it can affect/be affected by MS, but when I enquired was told “we do not have a dedicated mental health professional for MS”; so only option is to either go GP route or private if you can afford it.
It’s all very well concentrating on the physical aspects of MS and treatments, but not much good if the psychological side is ignored and ends up killing you first.
Just wondering what other’s experiences have been.
