Helping someone can be challenging and you can often feel confused and not know what to do. This page contains links and resources to help you to support the person you are concerned about. People that are experiencing mental health issues often say that the stigma attached to mental ill health and vulnerability can make their difficulties worse. By being there you can make a difference.
If you are really worried about a person and believe they could be at risk please seek support and professional advice (please see below).
However, supporting others can be demanding on our own wellbeing so it is vital to support yourself by having good boundaries and people who can be there for you.
