Ask For Help…

There is no shame in seeking help for mental health, so don’t be afraid to speak out…

If you are concerned that you’re developing a mental health issue, you should seek the advice and support of your GP as a matter of priority. If you are in distress and need immediate help, please visit your local A&E.

It’s important to tell someone you trust about your mental health; tell a friend or family member and they can help you get help.
