Mental Health v's Physical Health:

Just like physical health, we all have mental health. Our mental health includes how we think, feel and behave, how we cope with life and how we feel about ourselves. The term itself covers a broad range of emotional and psychological concerns that affect millions of people every day; the most common include anxiety and depression .

Symptoms differ from person to person and vary in severity. Some common symptoms associated with mental health problems include; panic attacks, self-harm, and suicidal thoughts. Common symptoms of depression include low mood, fatigue and loss of interest or excitement in things previously enjoyed. Often, symptoms of depression will impair emotional and physical well-being, as well as the behaviour of the person.

There is a distinction between 'mind' and 'body', but when considering mental health and physical health, the two are closely connected. Poor physical health can lead to an increased risk of developing mental health problems, and poor mental health can negatively impact on physical health, leading to an increased risk of some conditions. (Mental Health Foundation)

''Mental Health needs more focus; it is just as important as physical health, and should be taken as seriously'' Karen Corbett - Counsellor/Hypnotherapist/Coach - Life Matters, Manchester

Facts and figures:

According to the Mental Health Foundation, the most common mental disorder in Britain is mixed Anxiety and Depression (7.8%), with up to 10% of people suffering from Depression at some point in their lifetime. Mental health related conditions such as Anxiety, Depression and Stress are the leading cause of sickness and absence from work.

Talking therapy can offer a confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore issues that are causing you distress, with a view for making positive change for a more fulfilled life. A 2016 Time to Change survey of over 7,000 people living with mental health issues found that 60% felt relieved and "like a weight had been lifted" once they talked about their condition.

Talk about it:

One way of managing the effects of a mental health problem is talking about it. This can provide you with the opportunity to explore and be open about your thoughts and feelings without shame, judgement or discrimination. Life Matters Therapy offers talking therapies that can help you explore any issues you are facing, and understand what may have caused the problem and how you can manage it.
