Buy me a coffee? All of the videos, comics, podcasts and blog entries I create are free because I believe money should never be a barrier to accessing mental health support and resources. If you have found any of this content useful, and have a spare £4, you can digitally buy me a coffee (or two) by clicking below. It takes a few seconds and is massively appreciated by me! Cheers.

Published article: How to look after yourself when caring for someone with a longterm condition


Last month I continued the theme I've been focusing on recently, 'diagnoses.' (see Living with a mental health diagnosis as an adult and 5 tips to help you manage and Living with a physical health diagnosis and 10 tips to help you manage.)


This blog is a practical one, aimed at supporting carers, family members and loved ones who are looking after people in their lives. It has been published online and in print by the mental health magazine Happiful. You can click the button below to read it for free.


In addition, I have put lots of links for carer support at the bottom of this article. There are multiple links for carers, young carers and parents/guardians looking after unwell children.

For further support with your mental health, I have compiled a list of services, charities and helplines on my website. Some you can contact 24/7 if you need support now, some have resources or support groups. Mental Health Helplines & Links

This is not a complete list of all support that is available. Your GP can help refer you to appropriate services and charities.
