A new series of videos is looking at how we can support our mental health and wellbeing. In the first video, Katie Watts, a mental health professional from Essex, talks about when to seek mental health support.
There can be lots of reasons why people can put off seeking help for their mental health but this can lead to worsening symptoms and unhealthy coping strategies. If you think you need help, then please seek help through your GP, other primary care professional or through your local talking therapies service.
