Mental Health

Brighton & Hove has a high rate of mental health problems, so it's important that services get help and support right. Tell us what you think of mental health provision in Brighton and Hove using the form to the right.

You may also be interested in coming along to the LINk mental health action group. This group meets monthly to discuss issues relating to mental health in the city, and is open to anyone with an interest in mental health. Dates of LINk meetings can be found here. We are also proud supporters of the anti-mental health stigma orginisations 'time to change' (details below).

Mental health is about how we think, feel and behave. One in four people in the UK has a mental health problem at some point, which can affect their daily life, relationships or physical health. Mental health problems take many different forms and affect people in different ways. Schizophrenia, depression and personality disorders are all types of mental health problem.
