A mental health nurse-led multidisciplinary team has set up a project to meet the emotional and mental health needs of patients who have multiple sclerosis
This project provides a unique service that aims to enhance the mental and emotional well-being of people who have multiple sclerosis (MS).
In collaboration with King's College Hospital MS service, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, the Institute of Psychiatry and the MS Society, this service provides assessment and treatment using medication, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and psychosocial interventions.
Patients also receive education that helps to empower them to take control over their lives.
