If you think a friend, relative or colleague is struggling with their mental health it may feel difficult to talk about it. But letting them know you are there to listen and support them can make a big difference. For practical tips on how to start a conversation you can visit the Time To Change website.
You might find it hard to talk about how you feel, but every GP has mental health training. They’re ready to offer the right support.
Your GP might prescribe medication, offer talking therapy or suggest lifestyle changes. They can also refer you to a specialist team if they think you’re affected by a more serious condition.
If you’re away from home and need to see a GP, you can get emergency treatment or register as a temporary resident with one nearby.
