Mental Health

Mental health issues can affect anyone. Mental health is just like physical health, nobody chooses to have health issues but with the right support you can get better.  Issues may include eating disorders, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, OCD, self-harm etc.

Mental health is about how you feel about yourself, how happy you are, how you feel about interacting with other people, how much you feel you can overcome challenges.  Feeling up and down is normal but it may become a problem if you feel down, stressed or anxious most of the time. It is possible you might have a mental health issue and require support to get better.

In this section you will find links to organisations that will give you information on many types of mental illness and support services available to you.
