What will happen when I talk to my GP?
Talking to your GP is the best thing you can do to support yourself. Starting one conversation will set you on a path where you can take control of your problems and make the changes in your life to help you feel better. It might not be a straight line, but you can get there with support.
Your GP will usually ask questions to learn about you and how you’re feeling. They need this information to help them work out what’s going on and what might be the best way forward.
It’s important to be honest. What you tell the doctor will be kept confidential – they won’t tell your family that you’ve had an appointment with them, or anything that happened during your appointment (unless they are very concerned about your safety).
