Support for young adults: Online events

Check back in for the latest updates on Supporting Young Heart events

Join our next Supporting Young Hearts event and hear from your peers about their challenges, advice and experiences in navigating the workplace, including:

  • How they coped managing their condition and their work life
  • How they had conversations with their employer and colleagues
  • Challenges they faced returning to work
  • Emotional and financial impacts
  • Where to find support
There will also be time to virtually meet and connect with other younger people living with heart conditions.

Past events 

Let’s Have a Heart-to-Heart event series is a Supporting Young Hearts initiative that complements the podcast series by enabling more connections and dialogues among young adults living with heart conditions. These events aim to provide information and tips on how you can look after your emotional health and wellbeing. Each event in the series focusses on a different topic and give participants a chance to share stories, ask questions and meet other people going through similar experiences.
