Mental Health conditions are very common. Most people will experience problems with their mental health during their lifetime. Most will recover over time but there are also lots of people who live successfully with a mental health condition. You probably know some.
Whether you are concerned about yourself or a friend the important thing is to be open and talk to someone who can help, like your School Health Nurse. There are plenty of places that offers support and guidance.
