Our wellbeing – what can we learn from research, pandemics and each other?

13 February 2021

Dr Colette Soan kindly offered to lead this session. Dr Soan works as an educational psychologist in a local authority and as a lecturer at The University of Birmingham. She has had two SCADs and a diagnosis of FMD.

She discussed the research about SCAD and wellbeing, along with the impact of the pandemic. She talked about both post-traumatic stress and post-traumatic growth and what that may mean to us as a group.

We also discussed

  • What the Beat SCAD Cardiac Rehabilitation survey tells us about the need for psychological support after SCAD.
  • How Beat SCAD Buddies can help SCAD patients

This was a free event, but to help us continue our support of SCAD patients and their families donations would be appreciated. Click here to donate.

And there’s a round-up of what was discussed here.
