it's ok to ask for help

Like any other part of the body, stress, trauma and illness affect the brain. It is common to experience mental health challenges. In fact, about half of us will have a diagnosable mental health condition within our lifetime. It is important to remember that asking for help is not a sign of weakness or a character flaw. With treatment and support, people do recover.




you are not alone

“It helped knowing other people were in the same boat that I was in. That was really important. They were getting better so I thought, well, maybe I can get better.”
