Help is at hand for all those in Brent struggling with stress in their lives.
The North West London health and care partnership is encouraging people to access talking therapies as it marks Mental Health Awareness Week, which runs from May 14 to May 20.
Talking to a therapist or undergoing self-help courses can help people learn new ways to help themselves feel more able to cope with their problems, a spokesman said.
Almost 6,000 people in Brent have used talking therapies to deal with stress, anxiety, and depression.
One person said: “I was really struggling and never thought I needed intervention, support or treatment. But after a suggestion from my GP to try talking therapies, I decided I had nothing to lose.

“Since undergoing therapy my life has completely changed. My experiences with my difficulties have shifted my perspective and I do not find my situation unbearable anymore.”
Talking therapies can be accessed through self-referral or GP referral.
