If you’re concerned about your mental health, you’re not alone. One in four of us will have mental health difficulties at some point in our lives, and there doesn’t always have to be a trigger for it. Common problems with mental health include stress, anxiety and depression, but can range to more serious mental health problems. Your doctor will be able to discuss your concerns with you and direct you to an appropriate therapy.
If you have any concerns about your mental health please get in touch. If you don’t feel able to, please fill in this online questionnaire and someone will contact you.
Do you need urgent mental health help now?
If you’ve had thoughts of self-harming or are feeling suicidal, contact someone immediately such as your GP, a friend, a relative or someone else you can trust. If you’ve already taken an overdose or cut yourself badly, dial 999.
