Most of us at some stage in our lives experience stress affecting our mental health and this can make us feel very worried or low.Some may see it as ‘part of life’, but others may lose the capacity to carry on in a “normal” manner. These emotional upheavals can develop into conditions such as depression and anxiety. A small minority could even suffer longer-term severe symptoms of other mental illness.
Positive mental health and wellbeing makes us resilient, helping us to ‘bounce back’ when trouble looms such as a bereavement, job loss or separation. Some people develop symptoms of mental ill-health for no apparent reason. Knowing which way to turn and where to get help is essential.
