It's easy to take our mental health for granted - and if we think about it at all, we probably think that we're not likely to experience any problems with our mental wellbeing. These problems only happen to other people - don't they?
Of course we all feel low or worry about stressful things in our lives and these feelings will usually take care of themselves and fade away on their own - won't they?
Unfortunately, that's not always true, and it's a fact that 1 in 4 of us will experience a problem with our mental wellbeing at some stage in our life.
We’re a free NHS service offering information, guided self-help and a range of approved talking therapies from GP practices and other community locations across Wirral. Our aim is to provide the help you need in convenient locations within easy reach of where you live or work.
If you feel that your current level of mental wellbeing is affecting your quality of life and you think that talking therapies could be the right thing for you, please talk to your GP about a referral to our service.
Because our mental wellbeing doesn't work in isolation from other aspects of our lives, we've added a number of links to information directories such as VCA Wirral and Citizens Advice to our website too. These (and other directories) can lead you to statutory and voluntary organisations that can help with a wide range of issues such as housing and debt advice through to support for carers and volunteering opportunites.
