We all feel stressed or unhappy at times. Bad times usually pass. But, for one in four of us at any time, things just don’t seem to improve and we can find it hard to cope.
If you’re struggling, there are people who can help. A good place to start is your GP.
If you don’t feel like talking to your GP, you can contact these organisations:
