Mental Distress

Mental Wellbeing
The term mental wellbeing is often used to describe positive mental health, where mental wellbeing is high, people are able to live through life's 'ups and downs' with their mental health relatively intact.

What is Mental Distress?

A disturbing or unpleasant mental or emotional state, such as fear, anxiety, depression, confusion, mood-swings, strange ideas, your senses playing tricks on you etc, (often producing physical symptoms or behaviours) often impairing your ability to cope with day-to-day living.

Mental distress refers to a wide range of experiences, from relatively mild and transitory states to more chronic and severe conditions.  

Who experiences mental distress?

Mental distress is common and can happen to anyone, 1 in 4 people will suffer from some form of mental distress at some point in their lives, (with as many as 1 in 50 experiencing chronic and severe conditions).

Why do people experience mental distress?

The extent to which mental distress develops, whether in response to certain life-events or seemingly 'out of the blue', is thought to result from a complex interaction between your nature (i.e. genetic makeup) and your nurture (i.e. past and present environment).
