Mental health, like physical health, can involve a range of difficulties and complaints, from relatively mild conditions, to more severe illness.
Many people with mental health problems will not need a psychiatrist, as GPs can usually provide support and medication.
However, if a person's issues are more complicated then a GP may refer to the Adult Mental Health team. The team consists of social workers and approved social workers who may be able to work with a person and other professionals to offer advice and support around the following areas:
- Money and benefits
- Emotional and relationship problems
- Working and doing something positive throughout the day
- Improving confidence
