If you or a friend/relative is suffering from any form of mental health issues such as low mood, anxiety, stress etc please book to see a GP at the Practice – feel free to ask for a double appointment so you have time to talk.

It is important to remember that low mood and/or general anxiety are very common and are part of normal life.

Depression affects about 5% of the population at any one time and is more common in certain groups.

It would be a good idea to talk to someone if your day to day functioning, sleep, appetite, socialising and work is affected.

It is not always clear what has caused this change in mood, sometimes it can be explained by a change in situation, but sometimes comes without any warning or reason.

We have put together a leaflet which may also be of use Self Help Leaflet. Please share this information if you feel it will help in any way.
