Statistically one in four of us will be affected by a mental health issue at some point in our lifetime and current uncertainty, pressures and concerns are exasperating this for many.
But help is at hand. A free helpline has been launched, offering support to adults experiencing emotional distress.
Offering confidential help and support 24 hours a day, the helpline will provide a listening ear, emotional support and guidance to adults with new or existing mental health conditions. It will also provide information, advice and support to carers.
The service is available now for anyone registered with a GP in Kirklees, Calderdale, Wakefield and Barnsley.
