Research shows that about a quarter of the population experience some kind of mental health problem in any one year. Many people get over them or learn to live with them, especially if they get help early on but for others it can have a significant, longer-term impact on the way they live their life.
Mental Health Awareness Week (13-19 May 2019) gives an opportunity to put the spotlight on mental health welfare and encourage conversations and action. It is ok not to be ok and GroceryAid offers a wide-range of support services for those needing help.
How GroceryAid can help
