Advice and support for mental wellbeing
Just like physical health, mental health is something that we all have and is something that we should take care of. Mental health problems are common, and research suggests that 1 in 4 of us will experience poor mental health in any given year. Mental illness refers to a wide range of conditions which affect your mood, thinking and behaviour. Examples of mental health conditions include anxiety disorders, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, eating disorders and addictive behaviours.
