Adult mental health information

This flyer will provide an overview of what to do when you’re worried about your mental health, as well as what support services you can access.

A mental health crisis often means that you no longer feel able to cope or be in control of your situation. It often involves a sudden or continued worsening of your symptoms. You may feel great emotional distress or anxiety, feel you can’t cope with day to day life, think about suicide or self harm, or experience hallucinations and hearing voices.
