Anyone who has ever had a health problem, or who has been worried about the health of someone they care about, knows the value of reliable, up-to-date information.

See our mental health and wellbeing leaflet for ways to boost your mental wellbeing, and more information about how to get help.  

If you or someone close to you needs hospital care, start with going into hospital from the charity Rethink Mental Illness and check out our Mental Health Act pages

If you want to talk to a child about why their parent has been admitted to hospital, these booklets could make it easier

We treat both mental and physical health - see our physical health and wellbeing handbook

You can also read stories of people who have received treatment from us, watch our YouTube films, and find out about the medication we prescribe, and some of the conditions we treat.

For more information and advice, visit our page for carers, speak to our Patient Advice and Liaison Service, check our services pages, or see our carers information for national contacts.
