The symptoms and signs of mental health issues are varied and can come on suddenly or gradually over time. It’s often difficult to differentiate between expected behaviour and behaviours that can indicate a mental health condition. If you or someone you care about are struggling, you can find information on common mental health issues here, including what to do if you notice symptoms or signs.
If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of a mental health issue, it can be difficult to know where to turn. We can help connect you to specialised services and provide advice on what to do next and how to seek help.
Whether you’re managing your recovery or want to improve your mental wellbeing, we’re here with support and information to stay well.
