Thinking about your own wellbeing and opening up about what’s affecting it can bring up big emotions. Sometimes your mind can get stuck thinking about what’s wrong, rather than what’s right, and it can be difficult to see how things can get better.
It’s important to recognise if you’re not feeling ok, and to reach out to someone who can listen and offer support.
