Resource type

A stroke happens in an instant but its effects can last a lifetime. Many people go on to make good recoveries but because stroke affects each person differently, it’s important to get the support that’s right for you.

Whether you’re a stroke survivor, a family member or a carer, finding help after a stroke can help you gain more control and start to change things for the better. Helpful information often gets overlooked immediately after stroke as people are overwhelmed, or don't have time to find it and take it all in – so we hope this leaflet will point you in the direction of the right emotional support for you.
