Getting help

Here you can find out about local services you can access in Manchester. Use the menu on the left to find out more. 

In this section. there is also some information about things that we can do ourselves to feel better. This is called self help. Self help is something you can do alone or alongside the help of a health professional or specialist organisation.

You can also find out about different treatments available for people who need a little extra help to improve their mental health. Traditional treatments for mental health problems include medication or talking treatments such as counselling. Treatments are often best used in combination with other things, for example, your GP or health professional may recommend that you take medication as well as make some lifestyle changes. We are all different and will need our own combination of support to help us feel better. It may take some time to find the treatment or combination of treatments that work for you. Try things out and check out the other information about self help and services that are available in Manchester in this section of the site.
