Have you ever found it hard to ask for help too?🙋🏻‍♂️

It's common to prioritise others and fear being a burden on those around you. Or worry that you won't be seen as fun anymore if you share your problems. But everyone who is in your life right now is there for a reason. And believe it or not, they can become real allies in your journey to feeling better, even if you haven't tried speaking to them yet. Some will be brilliant at having deep conversations, while others can offer distraction or mood boosters to make you feel better about yourself.

Yet, there are times when speaking to close ones might not feel right—and that's ok too. There's always someone ready to listen, whether it's through a call a text or in person. If you or someone you know needs extra support, check out the resources below.
