Mental Heatlh

Frequently Asked Questions

We all have mental health which is made up of our beliefs, thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

It can be difficult to find the things that will help you, as different things help different people. It’s important to be open to a range of approaches and to be committed to finding the right help and to continue to be hopeful, even when some things don’t work out.

We can all suffer from mental health challenges, but developing our wellbeing, resilience, and seeking help early can help prevent challenges becoming serious.

It is often more realistic and helpful to find out what helps with the issues you face. Talking, counselling, medication, friendships, exercise, good sleep and nutrition, and meaningful occupation can all help.

Challenges or problems with your mental health can arise from psychological, biological, and social, issues, as well as life events.

The most important thing is to talk to someone you trust. This might be a friend, colleague, family member, or GP. In addition to talking to someone, it may be useful to find out more information about what you are experiencing. These things may help to get some perspective on what you are experiencing, and be the start of getting help.

This may depend on your relationship with them. Gently encouraging someone to seek appropriate support would be helpful to start with.
