MENTAL HEALTH:

 Seeking  help and information:

(If you’re living outside the UK I hope you can find similar organisations offering help and info where you are).

 http://www.samaritans.org  Tel: 08457 9090   The Samaritans are a 24 hour confidential support for people experiencing distress and/or suicidal feelings.

www.mind.org.uk    Lots of information here from a leading UK mental health charity.

http://www.asylumonline.net/resources/alternative-sources-of-support/#.T-rkKZEwmGk   Asylum magazine have listed resources on their website giving practical support to help people cope with mental distress. Additionally they have compiled a list of places in the UK – not part of the mental health system – that offer alternative sources of support.
