Here you will find a bunch of links to resources that can help you find help if you are struggling with addiction, mental health issues, grief, and I am looking to add more links to assistance with Australian social situations such as financial aid, legal aid and homelessness. This page has mostly links to information about conditions and contacts for seeking treatment. For help in a mental health crisis please click HERE instead.

What therapy is all about? Here I discuss types of therapy, benefits of therapy, financial costs associated with therapy along with how and where to find the right therapist for you.

These are some of my favourite and the most popular mental health blogs on the internet at the moment covering topics such as health and wellbeing, mental illness’s like depression, borderline personality disorder, bipolar, eating disorders. They are real experiences by real people and sometimes that feeling of ‘not being alone’ we get from reading these types of blogs is just what we need to get us through the day!
Podcasts are a great way of finding out interesting information and listening to relatable stories while multitasking. Living out bush I tend to drive long distances and Podcasts are great company, here I have listed some of my favourite Mental Health themed ones and a couple of others I love too.
These are some links to some of my own blog posts about various deep and meaningful chats I have had with random strangers and how they have impacted my life.
