Help & Resources

If you or someone you know are struggling with mental health issues, you should know that you are not alone. But sometimes, it’s hard to know even where to start. We’ve compiled this collection of mental health resources to make finding help easier.

Please call the emergency service in your area

if you or someone you know is in immediate danger. And remember: what works for some, might not be the right thing for others—it’s recommended to consult your doctor before engaging any mental health services, and it’s totally normal to try a thing or two before you find what’s best for you.
