Good mental health refers to our ability to enjoy life and cope with its challenges.

At certain times in our lives events may make it more difficult to cope so we may need extra support, for example, if there are issues at home or leading up to exams.

One in four of us will experience some form of mental health problem, particularly anxiety or depression, at some point in any one year.  Mental health problems can affect anyone, but the stigma related to experiencing a problem can often put people off asking for help.

If you are feeling low or are worried about your mental health it is important to ask for help. You may have already tried talking to family or friends, another good place to start is to speak to a member of staff or your GP about how you are feeling.  Additionally, there are also lots of other services in Leeds and online resources that can help you.

Need help, advice, or just someone to talk to?
