Low mood and depression

Most people experience ups and downs in their life, and can feel unhappy, depressed, stressed or anxious during difficult times. Many difficult events and experiences can also leave us in low spirits or cause depression; this is a normal part of life.

Other factors which can affect your mental health include changes to hormones, such as during puberty, after childbirth and during the menopause.

Having said this, sometimes it is possible to feel down without there being an obvious reason.

If you, or someone you know, is feeling anxious, worried or depressed you can contact Let’s Talk for help and support. If you are over 18 you can refer yourself and receive an assessment from a trained specialist who will help you access the best service for your needs.

Book an assessment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling 01482 247111, text TALK to 61825 or visit www.letstalkhull.co.uk

For Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) call Contact Point.

Young people aged 16 and over can also refer themselves. Contact Point is available from 8am until 6pm, Monday to Friday via 01482 303688.
