It's normal to feel sad, anxious or stressed some of the time. But if it’s affecting your day-to-day life, you might need specialist help.
Acute mental health conditions are more common than you might think. In fact, almost one in five Irish people have conditions such as depression, anxiety or alcohol dependence.
If you feel you need help, we encourage you to take the first step and reach out to a medical professional. They can listen to you, and discuss your concerns and symptoms with you in confidence. Then they can recommend the next step and give you a referral if you need one.
