Blog:The Greatest Adventure- W2.1: “So You Should Be”

Today my son has been to school, crossed over the road on his own on his way there and back, sauntered home in his PE kit, chucked his coat and bags on the kitchen table, kicked off his trainers (sneakers) and left them lying on the kitchen floor and set about playing the Sega Megadrive for a few hours (hello again, 1990). I have been busy writing a long post for my  Happiness blog and dinner was

Video:The Aspie World- Mental Health: Let’s talk (2018)

Mental health, lets talk, it’s a big issue facing lots of people in to day’s life. However Mental Health awareness is not as popular.

I believe that if we continue to make mental health awareness and mental health help videos, and keep raising mental health awareness, we can make a difference in peoples lives.

Most people are dismissive of mental health issues, and say things like, depression and anxiety are not real conditions. This is not helping people with mental health issues and is certainly not raising awareness.

I believe we can all raise awareness for these conditions to help anyone suffering from a mental health disorder.
