This guide is for anyone having emotional problems after a stroke. It's very common to have emotional problems such as anxiety, depression and emotionalism after a stroke. This guide helps you understand the reasons for this, suggests things you can do to help your recovery, and lists ways to get help.

Yesterday was day two of this year's UK Stroke Assembly South event in Stansted, Essex. Some of our researchers spoke at the event, sharing important insights into key areas of stroke research. There was also a stand showcasing our EVA Park project, which aims to help stroke survivors with aphasia regain communication skills and confidence.
New research review suggests that post-stroke fatigue is a symptom independent of depression, pain and sleep problems, and may depend on the 'excitability' of the movement part of the brain.
People with aphasia are at risk of becoming depressed and isolated. However, due to their language difficulties they are often excluded from stroke research exploring effective interventions. This research will explore whether an existing therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), can be used with people with aphasia.
Around a third of stroke survivors experience post-stroke depression, and 20% will suffer from emotionalism within six-months of their stroke. Our Emotional Support service can help.
