If you are having thoughts of self-harm or suicide please reach out to one of the following amazing organisations. They hear from thousands of people each day experiencing mental health issues and can offer guidance and support. Our volunteers are wonderful, empathetic and knowledgable people, but they are not health professionals.
Therapists and alternatives
A good counsellor and/or therapist will make you feel safe and supported, you will want to share things with them and they will HELP. Finding someone that you trust is the most important part. Choosing from a list of qualified BACP counsellors could be an excellent first step.
However, if you're looking for something different (and My Black Dog is a little different) please find a sprinkling of the unusual and a dash of the obscure below as well.
Remember, you don't have to do anything that doesn't feel right, do what you feel works for you. There are some great people on here.
