This research will develop a new self-management programme for stroke survivors with aphasia and their families, to help them to adjust to and manage their lives after stroke.
People can experience a range of changes to their mood and thinking after a stroke.

This research aims to find out more about how thinking and mood are affected long-term after stroke.
