Thank you for visiting this mental health & self-help page.
This is the place I want you to visit when your mental health needs a bit of a boost, you're going through a bad patch, or life has just become a bit harder to cope with.
I'm glad you managed to get to here and I hope you leave feeling at least a bit better in yourself. Remember there is always someone out there who wants to help you. Not because they 'have' to but because they want to.
I want to help. If you can't find any answers here, please contact me directly over on my advice corner for my personal advice on your current situation.
If you have been diagnosed with a mental illness, here is a podcast of mine to lift your spirits for a moment.
