If you’re struggling, you’re not alone.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is anxiety in response to a distressing or traumatic event. You might relive the event with nightmares, flashbacks, or confusing feelings. Some feel strong emotions like guilt or irritation and lash out at others.

What is PTSD?

PTSD can stop you from getting a good night’s sleep or concentrating on your work. It’s important to remember that you aren’t ‘dwelling’ on the event; you have no choice in how you feel.

Any traumatic situation can cause PTSD like a road accident or a negative childhood experience. The severity of your PTSD depends on how much of an impact your symptoms have on your daily life. It's not down to how traumatic the event is or was.

If you’re concerned you may be in danger or are having suicidal thoughts, please call an ambulance using 999 or 112 or head to A&E.

How it works

If it matters to you, it matters to us

You don’t need to have a full idea of what’s wrong before speaking to us. If something is bothering you, or your symptoms are affecting your life, then we can help.

Our GPs look beyond your symptoms to address the full picture of your health. If you need help, we’re here to listen – no matter what you’re feeling.

"I felt trapped in my own body. I just couldn’t escape from what happened.”

After Jon’s partner died, he couldn’t stop distressing flashbacks that would shake him to his core. Every night, he woke up in a cold sweat after experiencing vivid nightmares. He felt like his world was crumbling around him and his brain wasn’t able to process what had happened.

After months of struggling with his grief, he spoke to one of our GPs. They helped Jon come to terms with his PTSD and understand how to deal with the emotions he was feeling.

Why would I see a GP
for my mental health?

Our GPs look beyond your mind to assess a complete, overall picture of your health. That includes looking at physical problems arising from their mental health concerns or mental health issues arising from physical problems. As well as environmental factors that contribute to how you're feeling in 40-minute appointments.

Our GPs train with mental health specialists to improve the way we evaluate patients. With their many years of experience, they're well equipped to look after your mental health concerns. Each doctor can put together individualised plans and goals to improve your overall wellbeing.

With the help of our GPs, you’ll be shown how to deal with your health concerns; understand what you can control, and what you can’t. It’s a full-bodied approach to care.
