It’s important always to seek help in the first instance with any mental health conditions – your GP can provide support and resources.

After discussing options with your GP – some other factors that may be worth considering are stress reduction techniques such as meditation, exercise and sleep.

Guest: Dr Sarah Vohra

My mission is to empower anyone to spot the signs of mental illness in themselves and/or others, have more confident conversations about their difficulties and to seek support early

Mental health difficulties affect 1 in 4 of us; 75% of adults with mental health difficulties will have first experienced symptoms by their 21st birthday so it is a huge problem.

Education and early recognition is key and I hope to instill you with the confidence to take action sooner

I teach easy to use practical strategies that can be used at home, within schools or at the workplace

Let’s reduce the disability of mental illness together
