Mental health awareness is not just for today, World Mental Health Day, when the world comes together to promote wellbeing. It's for every day.
David Buck's blog is also worth looking at - he's very open and honest, and it's a great blog if you want to understand the person behind a challenging mental health issue.
Sometimes, all that's needed is a chat. A cuppa and a slice of cake is an open doorway to gentle, meaningful discussion about how you or your friend/colleague/relative is feeling - just like what the Environment Agency in Bristol did today! They held a 'coffee and cake' (with our delicious Victoria Sponge - thanks guys!) natter to help spread the word that 'mental health' is not a dirty word.
Why not post this image on the left on your Facebook today? We love it because the arrow cleverly points to your profile picture when you post it. Show you're listening!
Remember, it's ok NOT to be ok. Have some self-compassion and continue to breathe.
