One in four of us will experience a mental health issue each year in England. Mild to moderate anxiety and depression are common, with typical symptoms including low mood, lack of motivation, tearfulness, feeling worried, change in appetite or weight, lack of energy, disturbed sleep patterns and avoiding social situations. It’s important to seek early help before the issues become worse.
Many of the people we support experience more complex and long-lasting mental health issues such as bi-polar disorder, or a psychotic disorder such as schizophrenia.
