Often or not, reaching out and asking for help can be the toughest part and the biggest step to take if you’re not feeling great and feel you need to speak to someone about your own headspace.
More often or not, finding a friend of a close family member for a chat is a great way of sharing what’s going on, no matter how big or small. However from time to time we understand it can be pretty daunting.
What’s important to remember is that you’re never alone, and that you’ve always got someone to speak to.
Here’s some useful links as well as numbers to some great organisations in which we gladly endorse as being a place to go or someone to speak to when things aren’t quite plain sailing.
