Life doesn’t always go according to plan

Mental health or drug and alcohol concerns can happen to anyone, and it can strongly affect a person's behaviour, physical health, relationships, ability to do work, and even their feelings and perceptions of the world. With the right support, things can improve.

If you or someone you know needs support, there are options available, and you can reach out, at any time.

TALK TO SOMEONE YOU TRUST INCLUDING YOUR DOCTOR

When you are experiencing stress or worry, or feeling overwhelmed, it can help to talk about what you are going through.

Talking to people you trust can be a good source of support. If you are not comfortable doing this, there are other people that can help including your doctor.

Your doctor will also be able to advise you about online therapies and self-help options available near you.
