We don’t often hear what that time is like when you’re starting to suspect that something’s not quite right with your mental health.In this episode of Get Psyched Sharna, Ella, Luke and Lis describe that time in their lives, how they felt, what they did, and importantly what they learned. Which is what the clinicians focus on too; the learning. Learning about yourself and the signs you might notice when things aren’t great; learning what sorts of tools we can put in our tool box of life to help us through those tough times; and learning some strategies and early intervention techniques that might be helpful in supporting someone else.
Here are some handy links and resources where you can go for more information or for individual advice.
