This leaflet explains why your behaviour may change and talk about some of the things that can help you and the people around you cope with it. It’s aimed at people who have had a stroke.
A third of stroke survivors experience post-stroke depression and 20% will suffer from emotionalism within six-months of their stroke. If you are involved in planning or providing health and social care your role is crucial in helping stroke survivors and carers deal with the emotional impact of stroke which can be just as devastating as the physical.
This page explains how a stroke can affect the way you feel, some of the emotional problems that can happen because of it and some of things that can help to treat them.
A stroke is not something you prepare for. So you’re going to have a lot of questions when it happens. That’s why we’re here. We’ve tackled some of the questions that you're likely to have, including details of how to find out more.
