Coping with depression
One in 10 people will suffer from depression at some point†. But the right support and self-care can make a world of difference.
Whether you know you have depression or think you might, we can help. There’s information and support for you here even if you’re not a Bupa customer.
Getting support for depression
For some people, depression has become their normal way of life. But it can have a crippling effect. It can spoil your ability to lead a happy life, to get a good night’s sleep, or to find joy in important things like family, relationships and work.
Depression isn’t just about feeling a bit down. It’s a real condition which needs taking seriously. The good news is that there are treatments for depression and support that can help you to manage the symptoms leading to recovery.

Mental health support as part of Bupa health insurance
†As of 13th October 2020 https://www.nhsinform.scot/illnesses-and-conditions/mental-health/depression
†††Direct Access telephone services are available as long as the symptoms are covered under the policy. If your cover excludes conditions you had before your policy started, we’ll ask you to provide evidence from your GP that your symptoms are not pre-existing for a period of up to two years from policy start date (or up to five years in the case of mental health). We can then refer you to a consultant or therapist through the Direct Access service. Always call us first to check your eligibility.
