Let's talk mental health Let's talk mental health

Good mental health means feeling positive about yourself, being able to cope with everyday pressures and being able to form and maintain relationships.

When we think of poor mental health we often think of certain conditions such as schizophrenia or depression. But mental health problems also include common conditions that can affect us all, such as stress, anxiety and ‘feeling down’.
