When you’re living with a mental health problem, or supporting someone who is, having access to the right information – about a condition, treatment options, or practical issues – is vital.
Mental health is very individual, so what feels 'normal’ to one person may be very different to what other people experience. Everyone is unique, but there are many issues that a great number of people face in their day to day lives.
However you feel, you are probably not alone and help is available from the Wellbeing Services and/or though the information and support resources.
