Nicola spoke about the work of Shine, highlighting how individuals with lived experience of mental health challenges can access help and support around their recovery both online and face to face. The conversation also focused on the importance of peer support which can be especially beneficial for family members/supporters of people with mental health challenges.

 

She also talked about the importance of self-care, and the impact of our education programmes See Change -The National Mental Health Stigma Reduction Partnership and Headline who support the media in responsible reporting of mental health and suicide.
