Everyone has Mental Health 

Mental health is just as important as physical health, and whether you’re stressed or depressed, help is available. The NHS provides information and help on a wide range of mental health services, specifically in Wales we are working towards  improving the lives of people using mental health services, their carers and their families. The strategy is called Together for Mental Health.  

“Mental illnesses, unlike broken bones, are invisible to everyone but those experiencing them. But their reality is no different and no less painful. Many will suffer in silence, unaware that helpful treatments are available.” 

A quarter of us will experience mental health problems or illness at some point, having an enormous effect on those around us. Worse still, sufferers often face discrimination and stigma. 

Please visit these helpful websites that can signpost you and help you start taking the steps to improve your Mental Health.

Primary Mental Health

Support Service (PMHSS)

The Primary Mental Health Support Service (PMHSS) is a related service for people of all ages living with mental health difficulties. The service is recovery focused. This means that each person will be supported to identify goals that are important to them, and to work towards these goals at their own pace.
The service covers all areas of Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan. It is provided by the NHS and is free of charge.

If you feel you would benefit from any of these services please make an appointment to discuss this with a Doctor who can refer you.
