Mental Health and Wellbeing
Mental Health consists of two dimensions - Mental Wellbeing (for example, life satisfaction, positive relationships with others and purpose in life) and Mental Health Problems (the presence or absence of mental health problems: for example, depression and anxiety).
On this part of the website you can find out lots of information in relation to Mental Health and Wellbeing including:
Suicide. Don't hide it. Talk about it. If you are feeling suicidal or you are worried about someone else, help is available. Speak to someone you can trust, or call a helpline.
It is important that children and young people feel they can speak about their emotional wellbeing and mental health openly, and know where they can get help if necessary. We have different resources for children and young people, parents and carers, and staff.
You can find out about services relating to Emotional Support, Mental Wellbeing Services, Support for Children and Young People, Practical Advice and Information, NHS Social Work Services, Support for Serving and Former Armed Forces Personnel and their Families, Minority and Ethnic Communities and Websites.
A whole range of courses exist on various topics relating to mental health and wellbeing, available to the public, staff and volunteers.
Find out about the different campaigns to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing, tackle stigma and discrimination, and to bring about change.
A new Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy is being developed for Perth and Kinross. This will direct services towards new ways of working to ensure people get the support they need at the right time.
