Mental health problems affect around one in four people in any given year.
They range from common problems, such as depression and anxiety, to rarer
problems such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
In many ways, mental health is just like physical health: everybody has it and we need to take care of it.
Good mental health means being generally able to think, feel and react in the ways that you need and want to live your life. But if you go through a period of poor mental health, you might find the ways you're frequently thinking, feeling or reacting become difficult, or even impossible, to cope with. This can feel just as bad as a physical illness, or even worse.
We will see children, teenagers and adults for Mental Health care at My Specialist GP and in the 30 minute appointment can discuss with the patient to reach a diagnosis, initiate medication if required or onward referral to another practitioner for help.
