Following a stroke it is very common and normal for people to experience a change in their emotions. Common emotions following stroke are; anxiety, depression, grief and disconnection from self and others.

The team may recommend the below treatments for patients and their family members:
- Talking individually

If you do have any needs that fall outside of our treatment capabilities we coordinate referral to the appropriate services.
