We want everyone with a mental health problem who visits their GP practice to get the support that best suits their needs. That’s what our new campaign Find the Words is all about.

For most of us, our local GP practice is the first place we’ll go when we’re unwell. It’s there to help us with our mental health as well as our physical health.

In fact, around one third of all GP appointments are related to mental health. However, it’s not always easy having that first conversation about your deepest feelings with your GP, someone you may hardly know.

That’s why we’ve made a short film and guide on how to make the most of the few minutes you have with your GP or practice nurse.

How to talk to your GP about mental health

It’s not always easy to talk to your GP about your deepest feelings. Even getting to the point where you accept you may have a mental health problem can be difficult.

That’s why we’ve made a guide to help you to talk to your GP or practice nurse about the things you might find hard to express and to make the most of the few minutes you have with them.

Not getting the support you need?

Getting the right help to cope with a mental health problem doesn’t always happen straight away, and there may be times where you're not happy with the support you’re getting. There are steps you can take to raise concerns and access help in other ways.

If you feel you haven't had the support you needed for a mental health problem, we have information that may help you.
