About the resource

Mood disorder is a complex issue and despite greater awareness, continues to be under-diagnosed and under-treated. This “invisible symptom” can be a direct result of the disease process, and can change over time. Fortunately, mood changes are among the most treatable symptoms of MS. With the appropriate strategies and tools in place, people with MS can live their best lives and participate actively in their own care.

This book explores why and how people with MS experience changes in mood, and provide the latest information on how these symptoms can be addressed—from physical activity, medications and counselling to self-management strategies. This book provides an overview of the types of mood changes common to MS, and further outlines the most successful ways that individuals, researchers and clinicians have developed for approaching these challenges. At the back of this booklet, you’ll find resources for learning even more about these topics.
