Emotional and mental health

If you are having mental health problems, you are not alone. One in four of us will have problems with our mental health at some time in our lives.

Our mental health is about how we think, our emotions, our outlook on life, and how we cope with challenges. It is an essential part of our wellbeing.

Mental health issues affect us all in terms of adjustment to stressful life events and in supportive roles and relationships as parents, partners, employers, friends and families.
