Many people throughout their lives will have periods where they feel stress. In the majority of cases this is perfectly normal given the pressures that many of us have to face in everyday life. There will be times however, when stress becomes unbearable and some people who suffer from existing mental health issues such as severe depression or psychosis they may require to access urgent help.
The appropriate and rapid access to emergency mental health services is by contacting your GP who may put you in touch with your local Community Mental Health Team (CMHT) who if appropriate can see you the same day.
COMMON MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS
Everyone needs to look after their mental health. All of us can become stressed or get a bit down, and usually with a bit of help from friends and family we can keep going. However, there are times when the problems don’t seem to go away and you may find yourself in need of a wee bit of extra help. Please go and see your GP and talk the issues through. There’s lots of help out there that you can access.
If you are worried about someone’s mental health – a loved one or a friend – please encourage them to go and see their GP. If they’ve talked about harming themselves or feel that life is not worth living, then please take this seriously and encourage them to get help.
