Feelings of anxiety and depression can affect us all - but TALKWORKS is here to help

Posted by Admin on 17 January, 2022

Did you know that over half of the population (54%) were concerned about their mental health last year? The majority of those who struggled (nearly 60%) did not seek any professional help for their mental health. This year, however, people are more conscious of their mental health, and are putting their wellbeing first. Here at TALKWORKS, we want to help anyone struggling with feelings of persistent sadness, anxiety or low mood, to feel better again and feel happier. There is no shame in reaching out for help, and support is available for anyone who needs it.

Today, NHS England and NHS Improvement is launching a new mental health campaign to highlight that feelings of anxiety and depression can affect us all - and the NHS is here to help. The NHS provides a range of talking therapies for common mental health issues such as anxiety and depression which are free, effective and confidential.

The ‘Help’ campaign encourages anyone experiencing common mental health problems to seek help from these NHS services – either by referring themselves, or by contacting their GP. There are lots of different ways of accessing this support including in-person, by video consultation, telephone and interactive text,

The campaign uses lyrics from the Beatles’ song ‘Help’ to bring to life the message that anyone can experience feelings of anxiety and depression, and that it’s totally normal to ask for help. Sony and Apple Corps have kindly gifted the NHS the rights to the song in support of the NHS and mental health.

Famous faces from across music and radio, including Craig David, Tom Grennan, Laura Mvula, Nicola Roberts, Ella Henderson, Max George, as well as an NHS therapist and real people who have benefited from the  NHS mental health Talking Therapy services, are supporting the campaign in a powerful new video, featuring the lyrics of ‘Help!’, which calls on people who are struggling to reach out for support through NHS services.
