Mental Health Support

Approximately 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem each year.  1 in 6 people in the UK will experience symptoms of depression or anxiety in any given week.

The symptoms of depression are different for everybody. As a general rule, if you're depressed, you feel sad, hopeless and lose interest in things you used to enjoy.

Anxiety can affect you both physically and mentally. How severe the symptoms are once again varies from person to person. Some people only have 1 or 2 symptoms, others have many more.

See your GP if you feel you are developing a mental health problem or have been experiencing any of the above symptoms for over 2 weeks or it is starting to impact your day to day life. 

It’s ok not to be ok.



Coronavirus has been a stressful time for everyone.
It is particularly difficult for those who have lost a loved one.
