Thanks for joining me for this little chat at a time where it couldn’t be more appropriate! We are in the midst of Mental Health Week here in the UK which is such a great idea to be able to raise awareness and spread the word.
Did you know that 1 in 6 people are affected by a Mental Health problem? Think about that, think about how many people you know right now that may have coined the term ‘suffering from a Mental Health issue’? That means that if you only have 6 people in your life combined statically at least one of them has anxiety, depression, an eating disorder etc.
Now when you think about that wouldn’t it be great to know how to help them more or even just to be able to support them a little better when they are in need? You can learn a little bit more about that here >>> https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/campaigns/mental-health-awareness-week <<< – this is the organisation that is tuly helping to push things forward and take some of the strain away from those who may be feeling the pressure, that includes people undiagnosed/diagnosed, friends and carers who are affected in lots of different ways.
As some of you may or may not know, after I graduated from University the first time for Makeup & Special Effects I went back and changed my route of study and went into Counselling, Psychology & Neurology so I have always had interest surrounding mental health.
This year I have decided to dedicate my time to www.B-eat.co.uk who helps those people who have struggles with eating as well as the carers who may also need support; they are open 4pm-10pm every day, 365 days of the year and you can find more information on their website.
Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post, I hope you decide to get on board to start making more effective changes or get the help that you deserve!
