It seems inevitable that at some point in our lives we may find ourselves struggling with our mental health or supporting a friend or a loved one who is struggling with their mental health. Often figuring out how to help ourselves or our loved ones is difficult for many reasons. There is still a lot of stigma around mental illness and taking the steps to find a therapist or support group can feel overwhelming. Just fighting out where to start to look for help can be a lot to tackle for someone in their best spirits, let alone someone who is just struggling to make it through the day to day.
