A good place to start is your GP. Up to one in five people who visit their GP are suffering from a mental health problem, so GPs are used to helping with this sort of difficulty. The GP may be able to help you straight away. They may prescribe some medicine or just give you support. They may suggest some form of self help using local resources, perhaps through exercise therapy. The GP’s will also have a wide range of counselling and advice programmes that they may refer you to.
