Looking After Yourself

& Recovery

Everything is Too Much

Things can be tough sometimes and caring for someone as well as looking after yourself is overwhelming. It is okay to need help or support. If you’re struggling to cope then you should contact your GP as soon as possible.

Alternatively, you can contact any of the following for support, advice or a listening ear.
