My daughter was born with sickle cell disease in 2014 and ever since I have been avidly invested in sickle cell awareness. Sickle cell disease can promote psychological problems, such as depression, anxiety, and chronic pain behavior. Like any other chronic disease, people who have sickle cell disease may feel sad and frustrated at times. This can manifest in several different ways, including anxiety, depression, and even psychosis over time. I have decided to conduct a group session for individuals with sickle cell disease or caregivers with dependents suffering from sickle cell disease.
