Throughout our lives, 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem, and experts say that 1 in 10 young people are currently experiencing one right now.

Just like with our physical health, there is a wide range of mental health problems and illnesses.

Each one has different symptoms and different types of treatment.

The one thing that they all have in common is that they are nothing to be ashamed of and more common than you may realise.

In this section, we have included information about some of the most commonly known mental health problems.

If there is a condition which we don’t feature and you think we should, why not let us know?
