Mental Health conditions are very common, affecting a significant proportion of the population at any one time. Up to one in four consultations with GPs relate to mental health issues. People with mental illness often also experience physical health problems and generally find it more difficult to choose healthier lifestyles. As such the NHS Trust provides a variety of Mental Health services for adults and children, both in community and in-patient facilities. A new Facebook page has been set up which will share information about its services, signpost and offer self-help tips and begin to create an Island mental health community.
