Mental Health Support


Should you feel in urgent need of medical / psychological care or if you are worried about your safety, please go to your nearest Accident and Emergency (if able to) or dial 999.


| What is "Mental Health?" | Being mentally healthy doesn’t just mean that you don’t have a mental health problem.

If you’re in good mental health, you can:

  • make the most of your potential
  • cope with life
  • play a full part in your family, workplace, community and among friends.

Mental health is everyone’s business. We all have times when we feel down or stressed or frightened. Most of the time those feelings pass. But sometimes they develop into a more serious problem and that could happen to any one of us (Mental Health Foundation).
