So many people have contacted myheart wondering if there are others who they could talk to, who are in similar circumstances to themselves. No matter how much professional support is offered (either medical or therapeutic), sometimes just chatting to someone “who has been through a similar experience” helps the most. To reduce the social isolation of young individuals who have been suddenly diagnosed with a cardiac condition, myheart has developed online support communities.
myheart offers a private Facebook group for members to connect via social media. Any myheart member 18 and over can join this group by invitation. Please visit here for more information or to request to join the group.
The myheart website’s members-only area is for members between the ages of 16 and 35 as a safe place to connect with other young individuals with conditions. This is a place where they can feel secure and share their feelings, thoughts and experiences. You can register here to request to join the ‘members-only’ area of the myheart website.
