Welcome to Telford Primary Care Wellbeing Service

It's easy to take our mental health for granted - and if we think about it at all, we probably think that we're not likely to experience any problems with our mental wellbeing. These problems only happen to other people - don't they?

Of course we all feel low or worry about stressful things in our lives and these feelings will usually take care of themselves and fade away on their own - won't they?

Unfortunately, that's not always true, and it's a fact that 1 in 4 of us will experience a problem with our mood or anxiety at some stage in our life.
