Resources

Mental illness of any kind is complicated. The symptoms and experiences of a person affected can vary. I am not a trained mental health professional and therefore cannot give people medical advice, which is why I’ve put together some resources that could aid your understanding of what you are going through and provide support where I cannot.

This list is here for those who are in need of immediate help AND those that want to learn more about their specific illness and gain a greater understanding of how to manage mental illness.

If you feel that you may be in danger (either from yourself or someone else) please call 999 or your local emergency line, or go to A&E.
