Mental health problems are very common, one in four people will experience a mental health problem in any year - people can and do recover.

It's easier to make a full and quick recovery if you get support or treatment early, talk to your GP, a friend, a member of your family, or someone else you trust. It's important to let someone know how you're feeling as it's the first step to getting the help or support you need.
