Could you be experiencing a mental illness?
One in four people will experience mental illness at some point in their lives regardless of their job, income, gender, sexuality or age. It can happen to anyone.
South Staffordshire Network for Mental Health has developed a Toolbox that has helped a number of people to build their own plan dealing with emotions and preventing mental illness.
Doctors are encouraging people to stay well this festive season by seeking help from their local pharmacy for expert advice and treatment for minor health problems.
Pharmacists are qualified to provide expert advice and prescribe treatment for many winter illnesses such as sore throats and runny noses. With many GP surgeries closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day, local pharmacies can provide a valuable service to the public to avoid an unnecessary trip to their local hospital.
If you’re looking for a recipe for a ruined Christmas, try this one:
- Take an evening out (an office party is good, but a social with friends works just as well)
- Add far too much alcohol
- Leave in A&E for hours
- Swallow your pride
