Health psychologists are specifically trained to help people deal with the psychological and emotional apsects of health and illness, as well as supporting people who are chronically ill. Health psychologists then work to promote healthy lifestyles, and help people recover from an illness, or cope with chronic conditions. Health psychologists also deal with systems as well as working with people on an individual level. For example supporting staff working in primary care settings to communicate more effectively with patients. Health psychologists can also help to evaluate how effective interventions might be.
