Find mental health support

Find the help you need

When our mental health is good, we enjoy spending time with friends and family, we feel positive and any challenges that come our way, we’re able to deal with them.

We all go through times when we’re sad, worried, upset, confused or feel negative. But when everyday activities like going to work, school or college, hanging out with friends or doing things that we normally enjoy, start to feel difficult, it could mean that we have a problem with our mental health. 

Mental health problems are things like depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, eating disorders, and dealing with these can be tough. But with help from our friends, our family and professionals, we can find ways to overcome or live positively with these challenges. 

Whether you want to know more about how you’re feeling, get information about a mental health condition or know what support is available to you, the organisations below will be able to help.
