Mental health and wellbeing

Our mental health and wellbeing are central to our overall quality of life and general health. Mental health problems are widespread and common. Every year, one in four adults experiences at least one mental disorder. We can all do something to improve happiness for ourselves and others. These pages aim to help you get support when you need it and give you information and advice about increasing and maintaining your own mental health and wellbeing.
