Our mental wellbeing can often change and you might find your personal life or time at work is suffering if you feel down or not quite your normal self.

There are many things about life and work that can affect our mental wellbeing. You may develop a mental health issue because of stress at work, or you may find your emotional wellbeing suffers from a bereavement or experiencing a traumatic event.
