Mental health stigma 

1 in 4 of us will suffer from Mental Health problems! That means in a family of 4, 1 of them will have symptoms of Mental Health at some point in their lives! Sadly because we don’t see mental health as the same as physical health, the way in which we support people in their recovery is completely different… If someone has a physical health problem then flowers and cards are bought, telephone calls  supportive messages and visits are made, yet when someone suffers from Mental Health problems, they are ignored like they have the plague! 

Did you know that within mental health  their recovery is helped by just a kind word, a supportive ear and sometimes even a cup of tea! 

Let’s start today by reducing the stigma of mental health! If you know someone suffering with a mental health problem, send them a supportive message. You never know, you may just have saved their life!

Be kind to yourself 

This is so true! The way in which you behave towards yourself, sets the way in which you treat others! Be kind to yourself to help you to be kind to others ❤ 

Uplift, Empower, validate 

I am so excited I can barely stand it! I’m starting off my 2017 with a new adventure and can’t wait to get started! Here’s to an amazing year! 😍
