Should I speak to my GP about my mental health?
You may consider booking a GP appointment, if you’ve been feeling down for a couple of weeks or more. They can talk with you and may refer you to services that can help. Your GP can also tell you about antidepressants. You can refer yourself to talking therapies (information above), but some people prefer to speak to their GP first.
