      Just as our body can become unwell, so can your mind. When we are feeling physically unwell, for example a cold, or broken leg, we may go to the G.P to get some help and treatment. There is support and treatment available for when our minds become unwell. Sometimes people may be more reluctant to get help for this because they do not understand it.

      Early signs of Mental Health Concerns

      Experiencing one or more of the following feelings or behaviours can be an early warning sign of a problem:

      • Eating or sleeping too much or too little
      • Pulling away from people and usual activities
      • Having low or no energy
      • Feeling numb or like nothing matters
      • Having unexplained aches and pains
      • Feeling helpless or hopeless
      • Feeling unusually confused, forgetful, on edge, angry, upset, worried, or scared
      • Yelling or fighting with family and friends
      • Experiencing severe mood swings that cause problems in relationships
