Find the Words

How to talk to your GP Team about your mental health. For most of us, our local GP practice is the first place we’ll go when we’re unwell. It’s there to help us with our mental health as well as our physical health. In fact, around one third of all GP appointments are related to mental health. However, it’s not always easy having that first conversation about your deepest feelings with someone in your GP Team, someone you may hardly know.

Carlisle Eden Mind is one of 130 local Minds across the country, who work to empower, educate and support people with mental health issues. We are an independent, self-funded mental health charity that operates in Carlisle, Eden and across Cumbria.

As a local charity we match our services to meet the needs of the community we serve and campaign to improve the services available to those in need of mental health support, raise awareness and promote understanding.
