FOP undoubtedly takes a toll on an individual‘s physical wellbeing, but it can also affect one’s mental wellbeing too. The spontaneity of flare-ups and general restricted mobility can cause anxiety and low mood, therefore making it crucial for those living with FOP to know how to take care of their mental as well as their physical wellbeing.

We have compiled some resources to help support the mental wellbeing of those living with FOP. Follow the links (to external sites) to visit websites and find more specific resources.

If you know of any other organisations you think might be of support to others living with FOP, please let us know so we can add them.
