What is mental health?

There are many different types of mental health conditions and disorders, and a wide range of symptoms within each of them. They can be experienced on a sliding scale from mild to severe, and short-term to longer-term; with some being quite serious.

It’s important for everybody to look after their wellbeing. Mental ill-health can happen to anyone, and it can strongly affect a person’s behavior, physical health, relationships, ability to do work, and even their feelings and perceptions of the world. With the right support, things can improve.

If you feel you need support, there are options available. Talking to people you trust is the first step, as is seeking professional support. Focusing on self-care and finding peers who have gone through something similar are a few other options.

Digital mental health resources can often be just as effective as talking to someone face-to-face. If you’re not comfortable talking to someone in person, that may be the way to go. Whatever you choose, trust is a very important factor.
