Shownotes

This week I make my contribution to World Mental Health Day.

I am super passionate about the aspect of mental health in Lichen Sclerosus.

In this episode, we discuss what research has been done on Lichen Sclerosus and mental health as well as hear from some Lichen Sclerosus sisters and their thoughts on LS and mental health.

If you need help with mental health please reach out. I'm always available even if it's just to talk. I shared lots of resources in this episode so please don't suffer in silence.
