Mental wellbeing

Like physical illness, mental illness can affect anybody. And just like a physical illness it is important to seek support if you have been suffering with any of the following:

  • feelings of sadness and worthlessness
  • feeling you have lost interest in those things you used to find pleasurable
  • feelings of worry and panic

Your General Practitioner is usually the best place to start. They will be able to provide you with different options of support which may include talking therapies and/or medication. Maintaining good mental health is invaluable to having a feeling of overall wellbeing.

You might be able to pay less Council Tax if someone in your household has a severe mental impairment.
