How to talk to your GP about mental health

by | May 22, 2017 | Health, News

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. MIND
