Health in mind

birds

Mental health resources are aimed to help you identify some of the signs and symptoms of mental health conditions. You will also find information on how to seek help.


At least one in five of the adult population in Northern Ireland suffers from a common mental health problem in any year.

Although some people may be more prone to mental health problems than others, any one of us may experience difficult times that can have a negative impact on our wellbeing.

Even if we do not consider ourselves to be mentally unwell it is important to preserve our wellbeing so we are better equipped to deal with daily life and the challenges that life can bring.

Everyone has mental health needs, anyone can experience worry and low mood, but with the right knowledge, awareness and support, everyone can enhance their Health in Mind.

If you feel that your mental health is having a negative impact on your life contact your Local Doctor (GP) and seek professional help.

If you are in distress or despair contact Lifeline 0808 808 8000 (Free) or the Samaritans 08457 90 90 90 (local rates).
