May is recognized as Mental Health Awareness Month, a time dedicated to raising awareness about mental health issues and promoting mental well-being. It is essential to acknowledge the significant impact of kidney disease on patients' mental health. The challenges and complexities of managing kidney disease can lead to increased stress, anxiety, and depression among individuals living with this condition. By understanding and addressing the mental health needs of kidney disease patients, we can provide comprehensive care and support to enhance their overall well-being.
