Emotional Health

There is information and support available.

Most of us manage our physical health far better than our emotional health. Emotional health is about how balanced and confident we feel emotionally. If something happens and we feel low emotionally, getting back on track can be difficult. Leaving issues can cause real harm and lead to longer term problems.

Everyone is different, but signs that something could be wrong incudes behaviour that is not usual to a person for example, being upset, sad, withdrawn, irritable, angry, argumentative, guilty, quick tempered or tearful.

Different people find different things can help. Keeping active, learning, giving to others, taking notice and connecting with others are all known to maintain or improve emotional well being.

Participating in activity can help improve your emotional well-being. The Council's Exercise Referral Scheme supports people with emotional health problems to get back on track. NHS Redcar and Cleveland also provide information on keeping active and also on the role of their health trainers.

NHS Live well provides information on understanding your emotions and building up your emotional resilience. They also provide information on subjects such as understanding jealousy, dealing with bereavement and marriage counselling.

Some people will find it helpful to have someone to talk to, to be listened to. The Samaritan's provide practical advice on how to approach the person you are concerned about, or how to seek information or advice, if you are concerned about your own well-being. The service is available 24 hours a day.

BBC Health provides useful information and advice. They also provide links to support organisations for both mental and emotional health.

South Tees Children and Young Peoples Mental Health and Wellbeing Plan sets out how local partners will to make it easier for children, young people, parents and carers to access help and support when needed and improve how children and young peoples mental health services are organised, commissioned and provided. Please note, an easy read and plain English version of the plan are to be development and will be available in the near future.
