Have you ever felt no one listens? Do you just want someone to talk to?
Over the last few weeks I have found myself involved with a group who offer fantastic peer support . We offer a friendly, non judgemental, confidential place for you to talk about your problems, no matter how big or how small they seem to you.
This group are called Mental Health Crisis Angels. They came about as a lovely lady https://twitter.com/My_SimpleMind had the idea of offering somewhere for people who are struggling in life to come to and talk to peers who have been through mental health issues themselves, to talk to people who have been in that place and understand. The Crisis Angels have already brought comfort to many people, just by being there and talking.
My Simple Mind also has a great blog https://mysimplemind.home.blog/ where you can find out more about her and the https://twitter.com/MHCrisisAngels MH Crisis Angels.
Please take a look, follow and if you or anyone you know needs a place to talk about anything at all this is a great place to go.
You are not a burden, you are not a problem. You do deserve care. Visit us. We will listen

I'm just an ordinary person, trying to live with the twists and turns on life's path and there have been plenty of those! I've had a lifelong argument with my inner self. The two of me are the one who hides the depression, anxiety, self loathing and sometimes crippling doubt and social awkwardness and the one who argues that mental health problems are not something to be ignored and hidden through shame.
Ater a traumatic family period I lost the plot somewhat suffering severe post natel depression, death of a loved one, my child living elsewhere for a while and a divorce. An abusive marriage followed, along with a close brush with death a few times including a brain injury in my late 30s has left lasting physical and mental challenges along with chronic pain and stress. As a parent now of older kids and a teen, married to a spouse on the autistic spectrum (although undiagnosed) I've got a fairly wide outlook on life. I've had psychiatric treatment on and off for years since my teens but I feel that there are ways now to keep myself better informed, maybe that will help me help myself more, understand myself a little better and hopefully find a friendly face or two on the way?
