Mental health

Feeling stressed?

There are times when everyone feels stressed or unhappy.

Generally these bad times pass, but sometimes there are problems that do not go away and things get harder and harder. At some point in their life, one in four people feel this way.

Talking about your problems really can help. iCope – Camden and Islington Psychological Therapies Service – can give you the time to talk. iCope offers free therapies for adults of all ages, from young to old. The service can help you learn ways to help yourself so that you feel more able to cope.
