This year’s #WorldMentalHealthDay (Oct 10) is not all about Adults, although on this site we're concentrating on emergency and essential service staff, it's much more about the wider picture. How does the trauma and mental health of a emergency services personel job affect family life, does this affect their children's lives? if you feel that it does or has the potential to then why don't you contact: Headtalks.com (for youngsters). They're there for young people to support them in everything to do with their mental health. Give them a try.

So today is WMHD2018.....that's come around quick again. As I venture through my career as an emergency service personnel, I wonder what support is out there for us.
There's a lot of media coverage from the royals and from lots of societies about looking after our mental health.
I have now got involved with ourbluelight to help them raise the awareness of mental health issues through the emergency and essential services in the hope that even if I only help one person, it's one life saved. on this mental health day - ask your colleague, family, friend........are you ok!?
What are you doing this WMHD2018?
