We know it's not easy. Asking for help can be embarrassing, or even scary. It can feel like you're saying 'the face I've been presenting to the world is not the real one'.
We also know some people have not got the help they needed when they needed it. That's why we campaign so hard. We will not give up until everyone affected by mental health problems get both support and respect.
We want to answer every call for help. For instance, we have mental health helplines open 9am-5pm each weekday (except holidays), staffed by highly-trained, understanding, real people.
And we might be near you right now - there are local Minds around England and Wales.
