I’m in crisis now and I need urgent help – If you don’t feel you can keep yourself safe right now, seek immediate help, call 999 or call Samaritans on freephone 116 123 – they’re always open and are there to listen.
Enjoyed the breathing techniques you taught us – very helpful.
I found your tips on how to distract yourself when you can’t get out of the way you are feeling, like focusing, really helpful.
It’s so helpful finding out how other people cope and learning that we are all similar
‘I found everyone sharing their ways of coping so you can see what other people do so useful’
Really helpful. Good to feel not alone and have techniques to tackle stress and understand how stress works and how the mind processes it. The breathing techniques and Mindfulness were really useful – made me realise that I could control my mental health. The most invaluable thing I learned this year!
