Mental health

What kind of mental health problems are there?

If you are an adult or older person experiencing mental health problems you should first speak to your GP, who can refer you to a local service.

Common mental health problems include:

  • Depression
  • Panic attacks
  • Anxiety
  • Stress

What causes mental health problems?

Mental health problems can have a wide range of causes. We can often point to things that trigger a period of poor mental health but some people tend to be more deeply affected by these things than others. Factors that could potentially trigger a period of poor mental health include loneliness, the death of someone close to you, stress, a long-term physical health condition or unemployment.
