How can Ukrainians access mental health services in the UK?


We all know how to take care of our physical health, by exercising and making sure to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.

We would all see our doctor if there was something wrong with our body, whether it was chest pain or an aching foot. But taking care of your mental health is also very important, and seeing your GP is a good first step if you are struggling.

The UK government’s advice says: ‘We understand that you have been through a very traumatic time and have been exposed to enormous mental stress. There are mental health services available across the country that can help you if you are having difficulty.

“If you, or someone you love, needs help, it’s best to make an appointment with your GP.”
