Are you suffering from depression?

People suffering from depression often experience a range of symptoms, both physical and emotional, which can interfere with day to day life.

Discovering whether you are suffering from one or more of these symptoms could be an important step towards getting the help you need.

Your health visitor can  help you think about how you are feeling particularly if you are a new mum or dad, using the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale

If you would like to assess your mood, you can take the NHS depression self-assessment.

Please speak to your health visitor if you have any concerns about your or your family’s mental health.
