Community support

It's important to maintain relationships and social roles as much as possible.

Community support

Giving back to others can also be helpful in making you feel you have something to offer. This may involve getting involved in voluntary work, having a pet, having responsibility for someone or something or getting involved in a project a group or programme.

Social support

It helps to identify different types of social support, so you know who to go to at times of need. E.g. emotional support, practical support, spiritual, advice & companionship

Peer support groups

Accessing support and advice from people who have lived experience of mental health problems can be a helpful form of support. Peer supporters may act as a role model, a mentor/guide, or someone to confide in and help make sense of the problem.

Mutual self-help support groups

Self-help does not mean it has to be done on your own! Going to a group and sharing experiences and troubleshooting difficulties together can be helpful. It can also help you feel that you are not struggling alone and that there is hope.
