There are a number of ways that Op COURAGE can provide guidance and support for your mental health and wellbeing.

We can offer a range of treatment and support, depending on your situation - from mild concerns about your emotional wellbeing to complex and enduring difficulties.

These lists don't cover everything you may be feeling. Our advice is that if something doesn’t feel right, get in touch. 

You may be experiencing some difficulties that aren’t considered a mental illness but which can still cause significant stress and take their toll on emotional wellbeing, even at the best of times, such as:  

  • Housing issues 

  • Difficulty finding or staying in work 

  • Social isolation 

  • Money worries 

  • Family or relationship problems 

  • Problem alcohol, drug or gambling use. 

Tackling your mental health difficulties
