It is hard living with a mental health condition, and as part of #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek it is important to know that it is OK not to be OK.

There is no shame in struggling with your mental health, and we should look after our mental wellbeing in the same way we do with physical health. If we are feeling physically unwell, we give ourselves time to heal. Let’s do the same with our minds.

There are many resources available to those who are experiencing mental health issues, who are on hand to offer advice and support, free of judgement. Asking for help can often feel like a huge barrier, and many feel that they are being judged for doing so. Mental health issues are far more common than you think, with one in four of us struggling with mental health issues in a year.

There are people out there who will listen. And they will understand. Talking can seem scary, but more often than not, a problem shared is a problem halved.

Here are some resources and services that you can access should you feel the need.
