About mental health support

We all have mental health just like we have physical health, and it’s important that we take steps to look after it. Talking about mental health doesn't have to be scary; it's simply our emotional, psychological and social wellbeing. It's important to understand and manage it as it affects how we think, feel and act.

If you or someone you care for needs additional support with their mental health, there are a range of organisations and services available.

Mental health services

If you're concerned about your mental health, or that of a family member or friend, you can ask for help from a mental health service.

Crisis support

If you need help for a mental health crisis or emergency, you should get immediate expert advice and assessment.

Talking about mental health

Our #AlrightPal campaign is about starting the conversation around mental health and wellbeing as a first step towards suicide prevention.
