Self care is incredibly important to us all. But sometimes no amount of yoga and journaling can pull you out of the downward spiral of mental health issues. This week is Mental Health Awareness Week, so today's post will focus on where you can get additional help with mental health.

Around 16 million people experience a mental health problem each year. Awareness is increasing, but that doesn't necessarily make it easier to open up and speak to someone. Getting help quickly is vital, and recognising that you may need additional help is the first step.
