Why mental health?

“When I first started taking my medications – citalopram, zopiclone and diazepam – I wanted to know what to expect. My GP told me to read the leaflets that come with the medications for more information on side effects. This scared me so much that I didn’t take any of them for three weeks after collecting my prescriptions. I finally spoke to a pharmacist. They reassured me that most of the side effects were very rare and what to do if I did experience any.”

At least one in four people will experience a mental health condition at some point in their life, and one in six adults have a mental health condition at any one time.1 Mental health conditions can affect anyone at any time, including new mothers, children, teenagers, adults and older people.
