Adult mental health

What are mental health problems?

Common problems may be:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • phobias
  • panic disorders

More complex problems include:

  • schizophrenia
  • bi-polar disorder
  • post traumatic stress disorder
  • anorexia
  • personality disorder

Untreated mental health conditions can lead to activities or behaviours that are physically harmful such as self harm, physical neglect, alcohol and drug use or suicide.

Anyone concerned about their mental health should contact their GP, who may then make a referral to specialist mental health support services.
