I've put off getting help for years but today I did speak to someone on the number above. They were really kind and listened to what I had to say. I have struggled with mental health professionals in the past but honestly I felt this service was different and were willing to give me all sorts of options in terms of what might help. I feel really positive just doing something. I hope you feel able to contact them and start to put some ideas together to feel a bit stronger.
