Mental health is about how we think, feel and behave. One in four people in the UK have a mental health problem at some point in their lives, which affects their daily life, relationships or physical health. Mental health disorders take many different forms and affect people in different ways.
The Brighton & Hove Wellbeing Service is a Primary Care based mental health service for all people over 18 who are residing and registered with a GP in Brighton and Hove.
They offer a range of mental health support for common mental health problems, such as low mood, stress, anxiety and depression and is staffed by a team of qualified mental health specialists.
These easy to use patient questionnaires have been validated for use in Primary Care.
They are used by your doctor to monitor the severity of depression / anxiety and response to treatment.
They can also be used to make tentative diagnoses of depression and / or anxiety.
If you do fill one or both of these in, please make sure you include your name somewhere so we can identify who it comes from. It's also a useful idea to phone your GP to go over the results; they are always happy to get you in for a face to face appointment if you would like.
#IAMWHOLE was launched on mental health day, 2016 (October 10th) and fronted by Jordan Stephens of Rizzle Kicks.
