Wellbeing, resilience and coping skills

Your mental health can have its ups and downs on your liver journey so it’s great to find out how to adjust your thinking and remember that CLDF are here to support you.

Staying Connected

This webinar explores the benefits of meeting new contacts who can relate to you through your liver journey. Managing a liver condition can sometimes feel quite isolating, therefore it is great to hear about the opportunities and support CLDF can offer you.

Post 18 decisions

Our first webinar is on the topic of the choices facing you as you leave school. Choosing what to do when you turn 18 isn’t always easy. We have plenty of information here on all the options available to you. And below you’ll find the links to the organisations we refer to in the webinar.
