Mental health: finding the people who understand you

I’ve been blogging about mental health for a while now, but I’ve not yet talked about finding or creating your own support network. And yet, this is probably one of the most crucial and valuable things you need to get through it. I’ve talked a bit about helping colleagues, but this time I’d like to refer to your “inner circle”, or those closest to you.

Once again inspired by the Sanctus podcast on mental health, I listened to them speak about the importance of relationships for mental health, and couldn’t believe I had never addressed it beforehand.

This blog post has moved!

It has gone to “That’s Mental, a platform to talk freely about mental health“. You can find it here.

  1. Having those people to rely on is so important! In the workplace as you mentioned, that seems so uncommon since everyone usually seems busy with their own tasks. This is such a good read for anyone needing those people in their lives!

    1. Thank you Serena! Really glad you enjoyed it. Indeed it’s still rare in the workplace, but hopefully it will improve bit by bit
