Mental Health Support and Mentoring in Amersham

Three Times You May Need Our Help

The problem is mental health has a stigma attached to it. We look at mental health as a spectrum; some have good mental health, others bad, most of us in the middle somewhere!

Don’t Filter Feelings

I think we'd all be lying if we said we've never filtered our feelings. I tend to have certain friends for telling certain feelings to. For example, my best friend I will call when I'm down, other friends I won't tell because I know that they see me as an "always...

Always Be Kind About Others

This is very similar to yesterday's challenge, and actually something I've been trying to change about myself quite a lot. Have you ever heard someone describe somebody else and say "they haven't got a bad word to say about anybody"? My dad described one of his...

Make Your Bed and Open Your Curtains
