Where to get help for a chronic condition

If you are diagnosed with a chronic health condition, there can be some major changes in your life.

To help you adjust to living with and managing your chronic condition, it is important to:

  • access useful information
  • contact support from organisations
  • talk to others who have a chronic condition.

If you live in the Great Southern, Wheatbelt or South West regions of WA you may be eligible to take advantage of the Health Navigator program. This program supports clients to self-manage chronic conditions.
