Are you ok?

You don’t need to be diagnosed with a mental health condition to ask for help, it’s always ok to seek support. If you are not feeling yourself, getting help as soon as possible can be good for you too.

When should you ask for help?

  • Here are some common signs that you may be struggling with your mental health:
  • You are not enjoying the things that you used to, like hobbies, seeing friends, etc.
  • You are worrying more than usual
  • You have thoughts and feelings that are difficult to cope with, which are impacting on your daily life
  • You are sleeping either more or less than usual
  • You are eating either more or less than usual
  • You are not doing well in school, college or university
  • You are finding it difficult to cope with life changes, like moving house or changing schools
  • Your mood has worsened, and you feel withdrawn, anxious or angry
  • You may also notice physical symptoms such as headaches, stomach aches, or feeling sick.

If you are experiencing any of these, please don’t delay asking for help. There are lots of support options available.
