Hi everyone. Been suffering from mild depression for the past 6 years and health anxiety for the past 2 which has recently spiraled out of control. Have been too scared to reach out and get help but finally decided its time and plucked up the courage to phone my local mental health team and have an appointment tomorrow. Its amazing how much weight has been lifted from just making the first step!

Thankyou! On a 4 month waiting list which isn't ideal but it's a start. In the meantime at least I have this website now and can look forward to my first appointment

Good for you for taking steps to get yourself feeling better! It was the best thing I ever did and I’m sure it will be for you too. Welcome to the forum :grouphug:
