Feeling overwhelmed

Resource type

Stroke survivors and their carers tell us they can feel overwhelmed by worries, fears and emotions as they struggle to cope with the aftermath of a stroke.
The emotional impact can be just as profound as the physical effects. But this doesn't seem to be much talked about. We'd like to change that.
Feeling overwhelmed is the third report in our Life after stroke campaign series. It highlights the emotional impact of stroke on people and their families, as well as our recommendations to improve things.
