Often we hear of “action weeks” that seem simply pointless, but this week is Mental Health Action Week and I felt called to write about Mental Health. I am not going to tell you about my mental health or talk about how important it is, I just want everyone that reads this to know who to contact if they want to talk or receive support.
The Samaritans offer emotional support 24/7 on 116 123 (for free).
Call Rethink Mental Illness on 0300 5000 927 for different types of therapy and medication, benefits, debt and money issues, the police, courts, prison and your rights under the Mental Health Act.
Tell someone you trust like your partner, a parent or a friend.
Or simply talk to your Doctor.
You don’t have to hide, there are people who can help.
