Episode 10: Reaching out for Support
This episode was created for you by the team at Heads Together
Now, more than ever, we must all remember that whoever we are, and whatever we’re going through, it’s ok to talk about it – and if we need help, it’s important that we know we can reach out. Talking to someone can be a really positive step, and you can reach out to friends or family, or if you’re not sure where to turn, our charity partners are there for you.
In Episode 10 of our #60SecondSupport series, our long time supporter Hussain Manawer shares this important message about reaching out for support.
