Experiencing mental health issues for the first time, such as anxiety, can be really scary.
As well as worrying thoughts, you may also experience physical symptoms such as feeling sick, dizzy, sweaty or short of breath, which people may not initially relate to their mental health.
Knowing the symptoms of mental health issues is an important step in understanding what it is, and how to manage it.
The NHS Every Mind Matters website has lots of information on the signs that you may be experiencing anxiety, low mood and stress, and great tips on how to cope with it.
You can also take their ‘Mind Plan Quiz’ to get the top tips and advice for you.
