Mental Health

Many people get very low at some point in their lives. There is however a lot of support available. If you feel like this, please tell your doctor, family or a friend. When the surgery is closed you can call 111 for advice or 999 if very distressed. You can attend A&E in a crisis if unable to find the help you need elsewhere. But there are a lot of other support options for you and some of these are listed below.
