If you or someone you know is suffering with a mental illness or want to find out more about what might be happening with your/their mind and brain, please reach out and speak to someone.
I study psychology, human behaviour, emotions and I'm studying towards my Masters in Health Psychology but I'm not a qualified psychologist or councillor.
