Mental health problems can happen to anybody. It is important to remember you are not alone.

It is OK to ask for help if you are struggling. Maybe:

  • you feel isolated and lonely
  • you have had relationship or money problems
  • someone close to you has died
  • you have been pregnant or had a baby
  • or you feel at a low point in your life

These feelings could show you need some support with your mental health:

  • if you are feeling down or sad
  • you are worrying a lot
  • you are having problems sleeping
  • or you do not feel like eating much
