Mental health is about more than managing anxiety and depression – it’s a continuum that includes daily stressors as well as the healthy state.

In this session, two clinicians will explore the continuum of mental health and wellness, share the latest research on evidence-based therapies and interventions, and discuss strategies for seeking mental health care and optimizing well-being in the face of challenges. In addition, a parent of a child with CF and an adult with CF will share their personal experiences facing stigma and seeking mental health care.
