Mental Health Resources

Mental health is one of the most stigmatised health issues that humans face across the world. #TheStigmaEndsHere

The only way to destigmatise anything is to talk about it. Throughout the month I will be posting tips and information on mindfulness and wellbeing. I encourage you to join me in TALKING about mental health!

I have listed UK mental health resources on the next several slides. Use them if you need them, share them with someone who might need them.
There is no shame in seeking help.
