Dialysis Patient Depression Toolkit
This Toolkit was developed BY patients FOR patients with important contributions from professionals. While this resources was developed with patients in mind, facilities may also find it useful. "It is our hope that this toolkit may help explain the complicated topic and how to find help."
In 2018, the Forum KPAC collaborated with the AAKP and the NKF to host a patient-directed webinar entitled "Depression & Dialysis: Removing the Stigma and Strengthening our Mental Health." The Depression Toolkit was highlighted in this webinar alongside valuable AAKP and NKF resources. Click here to view the webinar recording, slides, and resources shared during the presentation.
