It’s #TimeToTalk – Knowing The Signs

Because there is so much stigma around mental health and mental illness, we can often be in denial about when it’s time to reach out for help. We also may not recognise the signs because they just aren’t widely recognised or understood. Make yourself aware. Read this article, it may help you recognise your own need, or the need of someone you love to seek vital support.

If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health then please don’t be afraid to reach out and talk to someone. You are not alone and help is available. By opening up and starting the conversation we can move forward together and look to a mentally healthy future. Below are links to a range of fantastic organisations that can provide information, advice and services.
