Worried about yourself or someone you know and not sure what to do?

If you or someone you know is experiencing mental health difficulties, you should speak to your GP first.

They will be able to advise you on different ways to provide treatment or refer you to one of our services. There are also lots of charity support lines you can call for help and support.

Experiencing mental illness can be difficult to understand. There is a lot of information available for those with a mental illness and their families and carers.
