HCM Impact on Mental Health

A recent study by Korean researchers found that HCM is associated with mental health disorders, especially during the first year after a HCM diagnosis.  

This study only scratches the surface of the topic, but it does bring up an important point which we hope that medical providers will take to heart:  the mental health of HCM patients is just as important as their physical health and sometimes, mental health referrals and/or medications may be a necessary part of the HCM treatment plan.
