There are three inspirational mental health signs attached to a fence. They read: "Don't give up," "You are not alone," and "You matter."

Whether you are newly diagnosed or have been living with Lupus for years, having a chronic illness like Lupus can take a toll on your mental health. According to a 2017 study, 1 in 4 Lupus patients have signs of depression and 40% of Lupus patients have anxiety. However Lupus affects your mental health, know that you aren’t alone. This page includes hotlines, therapists, support groups and other mental health resources for Lupus patients and their loved ones.

If you are having a medical emergency or mental health crisis, please go to your local emergency room or call 911.
