    Mental Health Awareness Week

    Mental Health Awareness Week

    Posted on May 16th, 2018

    May 14 – 20 is Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK – a national campaign that aims to raise awareness and break down stigmas associated with mental health. 

    Since the first awareness week was held in 2000, the Mental Health Foundation has helped raise awareness and generate debate about a range of issues, encouraging people to look at how they can impact mental health and emotional wellbeing.  

    Mental health problems are a growing public health concern in the UK; increased awareness paired with the demands of modern life mean more people than ever are recognising their mental health and seeking help when they need it.  

    If you are struggling with mental health, you’re not alone; one in four people will experience mental health problems at some point in our lives.

    Mental wellbeing encompasses a huge range of topics, and no two people are the same. Low mood and depression, stress, anger, anxiety and panic are sometimes related to big life changes, bereavement, stress at work or difficult transitions, but often it’s impossible to pinpoint the source or simply identify ‘what’s wrong’.  

    At YourGP we work with some of the most highly skilled and experienced therapists in the country.  Dr Sarah Kennedy is an experienced psychiatrist while cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) psychotherapist, Christina Raeburn, has been involved in the world of counselling and psychology since 1994.

    If you’re concerned about your mental wellbeing, speak to a doctor or someone you can trust about how you’re feeling. At our private practice in Edinburgh, we offer counselling services as well as cognitive behavioural therapy to help you explore any difficulties you are having and find ways to help cope with the challenges you are facing.

    After being written off by chronic pain team and their physios, and losing faith in the physio discipline, I had no expectations from Peter. I am amazed at what he has done for me. Although I still have my pain I, at last, understand what’s happening, why and how to best manage it. Peter has given me the control back. I recommend Peter to anyone I meet who needs a good physio.
