June is month. People living with can feel isolated at the best of times, but the pandemic has definitely had an impact on their lives. There is little counseling available if you have limited spoken language, so mental health can be neglected.

One of the best tips I pass on to loved ones of people with is to break eye contact with medical professionals if they’re focusing on you during a consultation, rather than the person with aphasia. Hopefully they’ll speak to the patient!
