Positive mental and emotional health means that you can cope with the normal stress of life, you can realise your abilities, you can work productively and are able to make a contribution to your community. Your mental and emotional wellbeing is an important part of you; it is an important part of everyone. It is about how we see and feel about ourselves and those around us – our family, friends, classmates, colleagues and people we see every day. When our mental and emotional is good, we can enjoy day to day life and we can get the best out of things. Positive mental and emotional health also helps us deal with problems and tough times in our life.

Talking about things might not come easily; however, opening up and having a conversation can help you toward understanding and support. Your GP is a good person to start with, to talk to about your mental health. Everybody can feel overwhelmed, worried, angry, guilty, sad, irritable or out of sorts from time to time – although if you have felt this way over the past few weeks or months and these feelings concern you, please talk to your GP.

  • Knowing what is happening can be a relief and also can be the first step towards feeling better;
  • Looking at all of your options can help you understand the range of actions and treatments that are available so that you can make an informed choice;
  • Understanding the positive and negative aspects of each treatment and action option can be helpful in making the right decision for you;
  • Embarking on a planned treatment journey can help you to feel better over time;
  • Talking to a qualified professional about how you are feeling can be a powerful step forward toward proactively managing yourself and your future.

Mental ill health can affect anyone, (especially experiences of depression and/or anxiety); these illnesses are extremely common among people in the community. While some people have a long-term mental illness, many people may have mental illness for a relatively short period of time. Most of us will experience a mental health issue at some point in our lives or be in close contact with someone who has experienced a mental health issue in recent times. Learning and Education; Changing Perceptions and Behaviours; Looking at Coping Skills and Thinking about Yourself and Others - are all key elements of your personal mental health journey.
