Feeling good mentally is just as important as feeling good physically. Emotional health plays a huge role in how we all think, feel and behave.
Poor emotional health and wellbeing can lead to stress, anxiety and depression and panic attacks, and can make it difficult for you to feel positive about your daily life and maintain good relationships with family, friends and colleagues.
Having access to advice about your emotional health can be valuable, and many people find that talking their problems over with someone is extremely helpful.
