In recent days, we've reported on the devastation that flooding has caused to the lives, homes and businesses of people in our region.

The Met Office has warned that more flooding is expected, and issued a 'danger to life' weather warning.

But some of the damage can't be seen, and that's why efforts are being made to raise awareness of the impact it can have on our mental health.

In this special report, our weather presenter Ross Hutchinson has been to North Yorkshire to meet someone with a very real experience of flooding, to see how they have been dealing in the weeks and months after.
