Go Online to Monitor Your Mental Health
THE NCMH has created a range of online tools and resources for people with mental health conditions.
These tools and resources have been put together by mental health experts, but they are not intended as a substitute for clinical assessment and care.
If you are worried about your mental health or that of someone close to you please contact your GP or another medical professional.
The NCMH website (www.ncmh.info) features information on a whole range of mental health conditions including Alzheimer's disease and dementia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), autistic spectrum disorders, bipolar disorder, depression, intellectual disability, mood disorders in pregnancy and childbirth, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and schizophrenia.
The site contains information on causes, symptoms and treatments, and links to useful resources around the web.
You can also find out more about how you can take part in the Centre's mental health research.
