It’s as important to look after our mental health as it is to look after our physical health but sometimes it’s hard to reach out for support and start that first conversation.
However, healthy dialogue is one of the most important aspects of good mental health and leaving things unsaid and unresolved can often make symptoms worse.
Mental health issues are more common than you may think and there are a number of NHS services and charities that offer free support to improve our wellbeing.
The information given in these videos is not intended to be a complete list of all the free support which may be available. Instead, it points to some key services and organisations which may signpost you to others if necessary.
