Nobody should feel like they have to suffer alone, and there are plenty of places where you can go to open up about your mental health. From family members and friends to professional services, the most important thing is to talk about it

NHS

One of the cornerstones of the UK's mental health services comes via the NHS. The NHS has made substantial efforts to integrate mental health services with general healthcare, ensuring that mental health is treated with the same importance as physical health. From offering counseling and therapy to providing medication and crisis intervention, the NHS plays a crucial role in supporting people with mental health challenges.
