In 2015 the Mental Health Foundation UK, issued the Fundamental Facts About Mental Health. Did you know?
The estimated costs of mental health problems are £70 to £100 billion each year in the UK.
In 2013 there were 6,233 suicides recorded in the UK for people aged 15 and older. Of these, 78% were male and 22% were female.
Mental health problems are the leading cause of sickness absence in the UK workplace?
The worst thing about having a mental illness is invisible. This can sometimes lead to suicidal because people can't see that you need help. It can also cause additional stress because you might be worried that your employer or people won’t understand exactly what you're going through.
Here are some things to live by every day
- What people think of you doesn’t matter, it’s what you think of you that counts
- Rock bottom is a beginning not an end
- Let your pain fuel your ambition
- Talk about your feelings don't keep everything in
- Exercise regularly and live a healthy life
- Normal is different for everyone, so don’t compare your friends to you
- Learn from everyone, follow no one
- Every day is a new beginning so is never too late
- Get help, you’re not alone
- Fear no one, respect everyone
Early signs of poor mental health
Some early signs of poor mental health might be:
- poor concentration
- being easily distracted
- worrying more
- finding it hard to make decisions
- feeling less interested in day-to-day activities
- low mood
- feeling overwhelmed by things
- tiredness and lack of energy
- sleeping more or less
- talking less and avoiding social activities
- talking more or talking very fast, jumping between topics and ideas
- finding it difficult to control your emotions
- drinking more
- irritability and short temper
However, noticing some of these signs don’t mean you should make assumptions about what mental health problems you may have. Instead, use them as a guide of when you should speak to your doctor or a specialist.
