Had A Health Scare? It Could Affect Your Mental Wellbeing

Have you had a health scare recently? Maybe you contracted a bad bout of COVID-19, and you’re still experiencing distressing symptoms of long COVID. Or perhaps you received the diagnosis of a disease or had to undergo a major procedure in hospital. These experiences can affect your mental health, and lead to something called health anxiety - we discuss how to recognise the signs, and what are some ways to cope, with Dr Wan Izwin Wan Hassan, Consultant Psychiatrist (specialising in Geriatric Psychiatry), and Tan Pei Jun, Clinical Psychologist, from ParkCity Medical Centre.
