You're not alone - mental health issues are common
Mental health conditions are very common. One in four adults will experience some kind of mental health problem over the course of a year. For some people they can be long-term or recurring problems.
Looking after your mental health - your mood and emotional wellbeing - is every bit as important as taking care of yourself physically. Keeping the mind active and having strategies to cope during difficult times in your life can help you to feel more positive and make good decisions for the future.
If you're worried about your mental health, there's nothing to be ashamed of. It's important to take care of your mental health. You should seek help and support just as you would for a physical health condition.
