for better mental health

Everyone should get the right mental support from their GP practice

We want everyone with a mental health problem who visits their GP practice to get the support that best suits their needs.

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.

Talking to your GP about your mental health

It's not always easy having that first conversation about your deepest feelings with your GP, someone you may hardly know.

Our animation and free guide may be able to help you find the words.
