My line manager was in my corner when I had a breakdown

March 2, 2017

When Andrew was unwell, his line manager, Nathan, stepped in to help him. Nathan wasn't an expert when it came to mental health problems, but that didn't matter - it was enough for Andrew that he just listened and stood by him.

You don't have to be an expert to look out for your mate

Why are we so shy when it comes to reaching out? So many people will experience mental health problems, but a lot of us – especially men – still don’t consider mental health relevant to us. But we’ll all know someone with a mental health problem, even if they haven’t felt able to tell us yet. 

Having Simon & Craig in my corner helped me deal with depression

It's all about people isn't it?  Life that is.  As we look back on our happiest memories for the most part it's the people that shared those moments with us that made them so special; it's people that add the colour and character to life's precious moments.

It's people that can make the biggest difference to us when life reveals its darker side, when we grieve and when we hurt.  And it's the people that share with us our tears as well as our laughter that we hold dearest to us.

I'm tired of hiding my depression and self harm

I'm Della, I live in a house share in a different town from my family, I work full time and I have to get through all my daily chores alone and ploughing through the darkness of depression. It's hard, really hard.
