Living with a heart condition, whether it’s you or your child, can be stressful and challenging for the entire family. That's why Cincinnati Children's is opening the Heart and Mind Wellbeing Center. Led by Nadine Kasparian, PhD, this Center will launch in 2022 providing emotional support and mental health care that is so critical for families affected by heart disease. Our care will extend to the whole family—parents, caregivers, siblings and partners included—since heart conditions affect the emotional wellbeing of not only the patient, but also those closest to them.

It’s very common for people with heart disease and their families to experience emotional challenges. Our research shows that the right support and treatment can make all the difference. The Heart and Mind Wellbeing Center will help children, teens and adults with heart disease and their families navigate through times of difficulty or uncertainty, regain a sense of hope and control, and improve overall quality of life.

As part of the world-class Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children’s, the Heart and Mind Wellbeing Center aims to transform heart care - changing outcomes for people with heart disease by addressing both their physical and mental health.
