You matter

You are number one. Looking after your mind is just as important as looking after your body. Mental health and physical health come hand in hand.

Around 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health illness in their lifetime.

We want to help you to help yourself in terms of your mental health. Whether that's helping to avoid poor mental health, to support recovery from poor mental health or just to expand your knowledge to help others with their mental health.

Seeking support

When it comes to looking after your mental health, you are not alone. There are lots of organisations and resources that can help, no matter how big or small your concern. Visit Headstart’s resilience hub where you can find more information about the support available to you.
