Support links: Let’s get rid of the fear and talk about mental health
A new year could mean a new start, fresh beginnings, new chapters, endless opportunities, resolutions to read that book, do that course, or spend more time with loved ones. Or on the other hand, for lots of people, it could be more of the same old, working tirelessly for little reward & recognition; never enough time in the day; a never-ending to-do list; culminating in low self-esteem, confidence or
even a withdrawal from the things & people you love. Whichever boat you find yourself in, consciously or not, we’ve all seen the importance of speaking up, asking for help and getting the support and care that you need. But we know it’s not that easy.
Many of us make resolutions to change our physical health, but let’s make 2018 the year to change your mental health and put your emotional wellbeing at the top of your to do list.
We’ll be discussing this in detail at our event on the 28th. In advance we’ve collected together a variety of links of useful articles and support organisations to investigate further if anyone needs specific support.
