Mental Health and Wellbeing

Just as our body can become unwell, so can your mind. When we are feeling physically unwell, for example a cold, or broken leg, we may go to the G.P to get some help and treatment. There is support and treatment available for when our minds become unwell. Sometimes people may be more reluctant to get help for this because they do not understand it.

By clicking on the headings below, you can access resources, information and further support. Please do not be afraid to speak out and ask for help if you are concerned about yourself or someone else.

Please note, this information is NOT a diagnosis. It is aimed at providing an understanding of different mental health conditions. Your G.P may be able to make a diagnosis for depression or anxiety. For other less common mental health concerns, a referral to a mental health specialist would need to be made.
