Having struggled with anxiety and depression over many years, I am a fierce advocate for mental health awareness and self-care.
You can find my writings about my own experiences on my blog, tagged with #mentalhealth and over on ECBC Manchester’s blog, where I am a contributing writer.
Each year I share 24 blog posts in 24 hours as part of the #TimeToTalk initiative, and you can find past contributions on the blog, tagged with #timetotalk.
If you’re unsure how or who to ask for help the resources and websites below might be a good place to start. Take care of yourselves and each other, lovely people. 💛
