Mental health support

Share this page

Sometimes we might find ourselves feeling worried, restless, bored, lonely or frustrated. Some of us might feel totally overwhelmed. It is very important that we stay aware of how we are feeling and look out for each other.

If you are struggling, there are a number of services and organisations available to help and support you and there are details of some on this page. Additional things you can do include staying in touch with friends and relatives on the phone or by social media, re-connecting with a hobby or learning a new skill through an online course. There are also lots of resources you can use.

Here are some suggestions:

If you are experiencing particularly low mood or high levels of anxiety or stress for a sustained period of time, we would advise contacting your GP to discuss how they can help and the support that they can provide. Contact details for the GP surgeries can be found below.

Depending on your circumstances, your GP can refer you to the following organisations for support:
