We’re encouraging people to reach out and start a conversation – whether they are worried about someone – or are in crisis themselves.

Speak to a friend, family member or someone you trust as they may be able to help you feel calmer and find some breathing space.

If you can’t think of anyone right now, or you just don’t want to talk to loved ones or you feel completely alone, there is help out there – you are not alone.
