Mental Health

 

One in four affected

 

It's easy to think that mental health issues don't concern us, but in fact a quarter of us will have problems with our mental wellbeing at some time in our lives.

 

Mental health problems are equally common in men and women, but the types of problems differ. Women are one-and-a-half times more likely to be affected by anxiety and depression, while men suffer more from substance abuse (one in eight men is dependent on alcohol) and anti-social personality disorders. Men are also more prone to suicide: British men are three times more likely than British women to die as a result of suicide.

 

Serious mental health problems are also more common than you might think. One person in 100 has a severe mental health condition such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.

 

All these figures are based on people who have sought help for their mental health problems. Many more could be living with undiagnosed mental health issues, according to mental health charity MIND.

 

If you're worried about your mental health, or if someone in your life is affected, there are plenty of ways to get help. Find out more about mental health support.

 

You can also contact mental health charities such as Sane and the Mental Health Foundation.

Bereavement 


Cruse

www.cruse.org.uk  Tel: 0808 808 1677 /01761 417 250

 

Cruse offers bereavement care and is the leading national charity for bereaved people in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We offer support, advice and information to children, young people and adults when someone dies and work to enhance societies care of bereaved people. 

 

Friends in Grief (FIG) is a community based 'light touch' drop-in service (free of charge) where anyone who has been touched by grief is welcome. In an informal but supportive setting, facilitated by trained Dorothy House volunteers, it's a place where you can be with others who are bereaved. We recognise that grief is something we all encounter at some point in your lives, but when someone close to us dies we can be left feeling lost and alone, in a strange world. Having a place to go, where we feel able to share our thoughts and fears, can help us to see that, far from going 'mad', what we are feeling is a natural and normal part of grieving. The meeting in Corsham is every Thursday, 1.30pm – 3.30pm
MOD Community Centre, 2 Portal Avenue, Rudloe, Corsham, SN13 0LQ.
