Your Mental Health

Today in the UK, one in four of us are impacted by mental illness. But while awareness has increased rapidly in recent years, not enough is being done to widen our understanding of these conditions.

Expert Research

With expert research from MQ Mental Health Research, one of the UK's leading mental health charities, and Enigma Wellness, Your Mental Health shines a spotlight on the symptoms, triggers and treatments you need to know about.

Mental Health

Focusing on five mental health conditions - depression, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders and self-destructive behaviour - Your Mental Health explains the science behind these conditions with engaging graphics, figures and facts.

Personal Experiences

Combined with real life experiences from figures including podcaster Gemma Styles and political strategist Alastair Campbell, this clear, accessible guide will demystify the complexities of mental health to give you a better understanding of the 'quiet crisis'.

Tony Westbrook


Tony leads a busy life as a Consultant hip and knee surgeon at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust and Spire Nottingham Hospital, and a trauma surgeon at the Queens Medical Centre, Major Regional Trauma Unit. He has enjoyed his work in the NHS since 1994, has spent time working in Australia, and now enjoys a happy balance of time spent with family, at work and competing in sport. Throughout his time in the NHS, Tony has seen decreasing staff morale and increasing sickness. He has witnessed patients struggling to get to see the right people and get the right treatments, and a lack of drive to build on good ideas that would make a difference. Although physically “fixing” patients is more natural to Tony, he has a passion for making a difference to the services available to improve positive mental health and wellbeing. As Chairman of Enigma Wellness, he can now be more proactive, using his experience in Healthcare, his understanding of people and the corporate world, to help build a more positive community through local and national initiatives.
