In this podcast Mark Smyth, Senior Clinical Psychologist HSE, points out how to recognise the signs of mental health difficulties and explains that there is help available on yourmentalhealth.ie to seek help early. Mark advises that if you find you are experiencing these common mental health difficulties, don’t delay in searching for help and support and speak to a trusted colleague, friend or family member in the first instance. We hear how Mark also advises that seeking information and support will make a difference.

The HSE and their partners have a range of supports available to you online, by phone or text and in person which are highlighted on yourmentalhealth.ie.
Online self-help supports include:
• ‘Stress control’ – a HSE sponsored online programme can help you to recognise stress, how it is affecting you and more importantly help you overcome these feelings.
• ‘Minding your wellbeing’ – videos that can help you develop a positive outlook using mindfulness, gratitude, self-care and resilience.
• Online ‘Cognitive Behavioural Therapy’ – helps you to change your negative thoughts and behaviours that are causing current and ongoing stress and anxiety.
