HEART HEALTH & MENTAL HEALTH
Our heart health & mental health are more connected than previously thought. Having chronic stress, anxiety or depression can negatively affect your cardiovascular system, & heart disease can negatively affect your mental health. That’s why taking care of both is important. Remember to eat healthy, quit smoking, & keep checking your blood pressure. And if you’re feeling depressed, burned out or having difficulties that you need to talk to someone about, members of Providence CRC have access to a free appointment with a licensed clinician. Contact the office to learn more.
