Mental health

Being healthy isn't just about your physical body, it's also about your mood and mind.

We all have times when we’re feeling low, angry, or anxious, but if you feel like this a lot of the time, you should talk to someone who can help.

Your personal advisor can listen to you and put you in touch with the right specialist service or support. Your doctor can help you to understand why you feel this way and support you in getting back to feeling well.

There are lots of services and support available to you, both locally and nationally. Groups and organisations that can help you with low mood, anxiety and many other mental health problems.

Everybody has some mental health issues to deal with and it is important that we find the right help to support us.
