How common are specific problems?

Every seven years a survey is done in England to measure the number of people who have different types of mental health problems. It was last published in 2016 and reported these figures:

Generalised anxiety disorder 5.9 in 100 people

Depression 3.3 in 100 people

Phobias  2.4 in 100 people

OCD 1.3 in 100 people

Panic disorder 0.6 in 100 people

Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) 4.4 in 100 people

Mixed anxiety and depression 7.8 in 100 people

Estimates for bipolar disorder, psychotic disorder and personality disorders are usually measured over a person's lifetime, rather than each year. Estimates for the number of people with these diagnoses can vary quite a lot but the most recent reported findings are:

Psychotic disorder 0.7 in 100 people*

Bipolar disorder 2.0 in 100 people

Antisocial personality disorder 3.3 in 100 people

Borderline personality disorder 2.4 in 100 people

 

It is estimated that in any given year 1 in 4 people will suffer from some form of mental illness.

Services

Counselling

Counsellors plays a crucial role in improving the health and wellbeing of society. They help people to talk about their feelings, think about their choices or their behaviour, and make positive changes in their lives. 

CBT

This is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It can be used to work with a wide range of emotional and psychologic problems.

Mindfulness

According to Jon Kabat-Zinn , "mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non judgmentally."  

 

The benefits that come from this practice include:

 

  • Recognise, slow down or stop automatic and habitual reactions.

  • Respond more effectively to complex or difficult situations.

  • See situations more clearly

  • Become more creative

  • Achieve balance and resilience at work and at home
