Understanding Mental Health

1 in 6 people in the UK struggle with anxiety, depression or other mental health issues each week. But many don’t get support due to stigma and limited access.  

At The GP Service, we're changing that. Your mental health matters just as much as your physical health. Our compassionate experts are here to support you every step of the way.

Because mental health is as crucial as physical health. 

Understanding Mental Health

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, act, handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Just like physical health, mental health is vital at every stage of life, from childhood through adulthood.

What is considered as ‘Poor’ Mental Health?

Poor mental health generally refers to a state where a person's emotional, psychological, or social well-being is negatively impacted. This can manifest in various ways and to varying degrees. It's important to note that poor mental health is not necessarily the same as having a mental illness, though the two can be related.

Here are some key aspects that are often
considered indicators of poor mental health:

What are common symptoms you should look out for? 

Seek Help Today

Common symptoms to look out for in mental health conditions can vary widely depending on the specific disorder, but there are several general signs that may indicate a mental health issue. It's important to note that the presence of one or more of these symptoms doesn't necessarily mean a person has a mental health disorder.

However, if these symptoms are persistent and significantly impact daily life, it might be advisable to seek professional help. Here are some common symptoms:
