Coping With the Ups and Downs of Pituitary Disorders: A Webinar

Pituitary World News friend and contributor Linda M. Rio, M.A., MFT presents this informational lecture to help people identify at least 3 mental health symptoms that are common to those diagnosed with a pituitary disorder.

Participants will learn positive coping skills for both pituitary patients and their family members. 

The presentation focuses on three important aspects: 1), understanding the basics of “trauma” and its potential role in the etiology of some pituitary disorders; 2), knowing how the medical/physiological aspects of pituitary tumors and other pituitary disorders can interact and affect the mental health of patients; and 3) recognize the potential impact on the family for those with a member with a pituitary disorder.
