Mental health is something that affects so many people, in so many ways. Yet the subject is not spoken about as much as it should be and people are worried about mentioning it for fear of what the response may be.

Thankfully attitudes have changed and continue to move in positive directions, it can be talked about more openly now and there are ways of getting guidance that helps to make it all the more easier to address so we can support ourselves, others and each other.
