World Mental Health Day 2021

Today is World Mental Health Day.

We all have physical health and we all have mental health.

Why is it so easy to talk about our physical health problems (such as diabetes or asthma), but there is still such a stigma around mental health and mental health problems?

I ask all my patients about their mental health, whether in my ‘normal’ medical work or private practice, as this is good medical practice and if it saves just one person then I truly believe it is worth it!

***Remember- we are so lucky to live in Cambridgeshire- use 111 option 2 for mental health problems***
