Have you had a heart event, such as heart attack, heart surgery or stent, or unstable angina, in the past 12 months?
The Australian Centre for Heart Health is trialing a self-management program delivered online, allowing people to complete desired modules when and where they want, at their own pace. The program is designed to help people improve their behavioural and emotional wellbeing after a cardiac event. Heart Support Australia's members have been invited to participate.

INFORMATION & EDUCATION
Documents, videos and resources to guide you and help you better manage your heart event
Your donation helps us to provide more opportunities for people with heart disease to connect with others who also suffer from experiencing a heart event. With your donation we can create more peer support groups across the country.
Heart Support Australia (HS-A) is a national not-for-profit organisation providing support, information, and encouragement to people who have been affected by a heart event.
The National Office supports HS-A's role as a peak body while our network of Branches and Interest Groups across Australia provides on-the-ground support, particularly to those in remote, regional and rural areas.
Of the 4.2 million Australians living with a heart condition, 1.2 million are also diagnosed with heart disease. These Australians are five to seven times more likely to suffer future heart events than those who are not diagnosed.
Your support can help HS-A reach these Australians and provide them with the programs and services they need to improve their quality of life and help reduce their risk of a secondary heart event.
Healthy Living provides an in-depth look at the pressing health issues that matter most to Australians.
Join our Patron and cardiologist Dr Ross Walker every Sunday for two hours of informative discussion on all things health-related, interviews with Australia’s leading health practitioners, and live talkback calls from right across the country.
Tune in to Sydney's 2GB or via the internet www.2gb.com on Sunday nights from 7 to 9 pm.
COMMUNITY PEER SUPPORT
Our support groups offer peer support services to assist people affected by heart conditions. Branches meet on a regular basis, organising social events, guest speakers, recreational activities, hospital visits and other community work. Along with our on-the-ground support services, HS-A provides a host of online and virtual support options that cater to housebound Australians and those living in remote, rural and regional areas.
Heart Support Australia is keen to make contact with people who have had heart conditions or have family or friends with a heart condition.
