Over 20% of People with Crohn's Also Suffer from PTSD

People with chronic illness may stop receiving support after treatment ends

Dany Bell from Macmillan Cancer Support said, "It is tragic, but sadly not surprising, that so many people with cancer suffer from PTSD ... While a common perception is that people should feel 'lucky' to have survived, we often hear from people who felt that the support they received 'dropped away' when their treatment ended. The health and care system has a long way to go in terms of supporting people after cancer treatment."
