In fact, according to NHS England one in four adults experience at least one diagnosable mental health problem.

It is the single largest cause of disability in the UK – but what services are available for adults in order to get help?

As part of World Mental Health Day on Tuesday (October 10) we take a look at where you can get help, support and advice:
