I don’t believe there is anyone who has not in some way been touched by mental health problems. So i think we should all spend time to look after our wellbeing. I joined Community Minds to meet like minded people and also to recognise the signs in somebody, who may be experiencing mental health difficulties. The more people that are educated on what depression and anxiety looks like, the more hope there will be for people who are carrying the ‘black dog’.
I am happy to make myself available, to anyone who feels they need to talk to someone, in an environment that suits both. Be that in my place of work, in the football field or in a social setting. I am not a great person to talk, perhaps bordering on socially inept at times but I sure can listen!
