It’s a fact. Mental health affects every single one of us and it impacts almost every area of our lives. Our mental health and wellbeing influence how we feel, act and think and can have an impact on our relationships with others – positive or negative.
It’s normal for many people to experience problems with their mental health at some point in their lives. Whether it’s feeling stressed, depressed or dealing with a traumatic experience or the loss of a loved one, mental ill-health can affect anyone, regardless of their age or situation.
At Centred, we believe that understanding mental health conditions – and the wide range of symptoms people can experience – is key to recovery. It’s also important that people realise that the effects of mental ill-health are entirely normal and treatable.
The good news is that more people are understanding and accepting mental health conditions in the same way as physical illnesses are considered and that society is breaking down the stigma and shame attached to mental illness. In this section, we break down some key information about mental health with the aim of helping even more people feel okay about not feeling okay and knowing when and how to look for help.
