While I have been blogging more about mental health consistently, it suddenly occurred to me that a very helpful thing I could do is to share more resources on the topic!
While I very much appreciate everyone who reads my blog posts, I’m also aware that I am not a trained healthcare professional, nor have I ever helped rehabilitate people who have suffered from mental health issues.
So here it is all in one place for you to reference at any time. There are a variety of different sources than can support with definitions of mental health issues, and in some case provide governmental resources and phone numbers for you to call.
There is also advice for people who may have friends or family suffering from mental health issues on how to help them.
- Mind – British mental health charity
- Real monsters – fantastic illustrations of mental health issues
