Mental Health:

Sometimes uncomfortable and intense emotions like fear and sadness can make us feel overwhelmed, anxious, panicky or depressed.

Our confidence can be shattered making us feel trapped or completely alone until it passes. But occasionally when hidden issues are left unresolved, intense feelings linger or refuse to go away. One in four of us can experience Mental Health issues at any time in our life.
