About the resource

Physical health is only one of the ingredients for a person’s well-being, psychological and social factors also play a crucial role. One cannot ignore the influence MS has on the emotional, psychological and social life of the people concerned and, indirectly, of the people who are close to them.

In addition to the physical, MS can have effects on a person’s mood, way of perceiving reality and behaviour. These changes can be considered normal, given the exceptional nature of the situation you are experiencing, but in some cases it happens that the changes materialise in more complex psychological problems, giving rise, for example, to a depression, an anxious state or excessive stress.

This guide has been designed and created for people with multiple sclerosis, so that they have all the information they need to understand and interpret their situation, so as to activate personal and social resources, and possibly resort to the help of professionals.
