While I am training to be a mental health nurse, I am not yet qualified. I cannot give personal advice, nor would it be appropriate for me to do so. All of the experiences, stories, anecdotes, etc. which you will find on this site have been shared to offer camaraderie and hope (and occasionally, entertainment). I will do my best to signpost you to the resources which I know of, however if you are worried about your mental wellbeing your first call should always be to your GP or mental health professional. You can find a link to some resources at the top of the page. If you are worried about your safety or that of someone you know, please call your GP or dial 111.
