It is important to know that you are not alone. 1 in 4 people experience a mental health problem at any given time.
Mental health is something that affects us all. Statistics show that a quarter of us will experience a mental health problem within any given year and many people will have thoughts of self-harm and suicide.
But speaking to others about how you are feeling, and asking for help can be the start of your recovery; talk to your friends and family, to your GP or other professionals, or call us to find what support is available in your area.
If you are in crisis or feeling desperate or feeling suicidal please contact the numbers below.
If you already have a Support Worker, Community Psychiatric Nurse (CPN) or Social Worker you should contact them first, they will already have some knowledge about you. If you do not know how to contact them ring Cumbria Partnership Direct 0800 171 2333
