Your Mental Health is a very important part of your overall well being. Do you have any concerns for yourself or a loved one? If yes, you can use the self assessment tools here to assess your overall mood and look for signs of anxiety and depression. You can also create a Mind Plan to help maintain and improve your mental health and wellbeing. In addition, you can access lots of helpful Mental Health organisations.
This self assessment helps you better understand how you've been feeling over the last fortnight, and points you in the right direction for helpful advice and information on anxiety and depression.
If you are experiencing mental health problems, or are concerned about someone you know, their family GP can help. GPs act as a first point of contact and can provide initial support as well as providing signposting / referral and advice on mental health services. Please read this document for more information about the support that is available in the Richmond & Hambleton area.
This self assessment will help you assess whether you could be suffering from depression, based on how you've been feeling over the last fortnight.
The local NHS clinical commissioning groups are reminding young people (aged between 11 and 18) that there are a variety of services available to them across the region to help manage their mental wellbeing.
Your Mind Plan helps you build a practical plan you can use to help maintain and improve your mental health and well being.
