What is it?
Mental ill health can affect anyone at any time, at any point in their life, whether you are a child, adult or older person. Some examples of mental health conditions are depression and anxiety but there are many more. Loss or separation, life changes or traumatic events can all affect our mental wellbeing.
Feeling like you have a mental health condition or being diagnosed with one is nothing to be ashamed of, and people should ask for help as soon as they are feeling that they are unable to cope with day to day life because of their mental health.
