Arthritis At Home Episode 121 – ACE Survey on Arthritis and Mental Health
People with arthritis are at higher risk for developing mental health issues. Researchers believe that pain, fatigue, and other symptoms aggravate mental health and reduce the ability to self-manage and cope with arthritis. In this episode of Arthritis At Home, Kelly Lendvoy and Ellen Wang discuss the ACE Survey on mental health.
ACE hopes to understand what steps people living with arthritis can take to care for their mental health and what specific challenges they may face when accessing professional and timely care. The Survey will also help identify how patient organizations, health care providers and the healthcare system can better support the mental health and wellbeing of individuals living with arthritis. The Survey is open to people living with any form of arthritis and will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. The Survey deadline is May 25, 2022.
