Mental health problems affect around one in four people in any given year – that’s around 36,000 people in North Somerset alone. These problems range from common conditions such as depression and anxiety to rarer problems like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
Our mental health services are provided in partnership with Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health NHS Trust. Most people are referred to the services by their doctor.
The NHS also publishes advice if you are worried about your, or someone else’s, mental health.
