Mental health and wellbeing

At the MPS Society, we believe that looking after your mental health is as important as your physical health.  Maintaining your mental health is a key aspect of living as well as possible with MPS, Fabry and related diseases. 

Living with a rare condition can be psychologically and emotionally challenging in a number of ways and we want to ensure that each of our members have access to the resources they need to face these challenges. 

Accessing urgent mental health support

If you're in crisis and need to talk right now, there are many helplines staffed by trained people ready to listen.

Rare Minds counselling service

Rare Minds provide a counselling service which is free to MPS Society members.

Counselling for 16+ years

We are pleased to be able to offer a Young Peoples Counselling Service in collaboration with Rareminds.
