Understand co-dependency

Co-dependency is one of the mental health issues that we hear very little about. In fact, the vast majority of people probably haven’t even heard of it. However, this is a very real problem that affects many people. Here, we have put together a guide of what is it and how it affects sufferers.

Co-dependency is excessive emotional or psychological reliance on a partner and is frequently witnessed in relationships where someone has an illness or addiction. Many co-dependents believe that their happiness depends on the other person and the relationship, which can leave them feeling unhappy and worthless.

Being co-dependent can affect a person’s life in many ways. Frequently they will find they suffer from many of the following symptoms:

Low self-esteem

Poor boundaries
