I'm struggling most days

We all go through tough times in our lives. When we do, we might find it difficult to cope with day to day life. These feelings are normal and usually pass, but if they don't go away it can help to get support. It is ok to ask for help. Taking that first step towards getting support can be difficult but can make a difference.

Talking to your GP or getting support from people you trust can make a difference.

GP and professional support:

Visit how your GP can help with regard to support services or referring you to a mental health specialist such as a psychologist or psychiatrist depending on your budget. 

Before consulting a GP it is important to ask the receptionist to book a longer appointment, so there is plenty of time to discuss the situation without feeling rushed.

Phone support:

Help is available; there are support services (including emergency and support lines) that can assist you with your mental health.

Call 000 in an emergency or if you feel you or someone else is at risk of harm.
