Hi I'm Georgia, I'm currently studying Psychology at University with the hope in the future to help people with mental health issues. From suffering with mental health issues in the past and loosing family members to mental health I feel it's important to help people suffering from these illnesses and to make a stand against the stigma. I hope anyone going through mental health problems uses this group to help themselves or others and comes forward to talk to us because we want to help.

I am here to offer a supportive and non-judgemental ear to all those who need someone. Please feel free to drop us a message about anything you need, and we will be here to support you.

Oliver

Mental health is extremely important, everybody deserves the right to communicate with fellow human beings. The most vulnerable people in our society are being impacted the greatest due to Coronavirus. People aren’t allowed to leave their homes and are therefore isolated from the rest of society. I want be there for people who need a chat, I want to be there for people who need someone to listen, I want to show compassion and care to people whom think there is none left. I just want to do what I can to help. Thank you for your consideration, keep safe.

Hi I’m Sara. I have struggled with depression and anxiety my whole life and I have experienced being in a controlling and abusive relationship for a long time. I am finally free yet I still struggle with my mental health every day and had it not been for the kindness and generosity of those that reached out to me during my time of need I may not have made it this far in my journey for this reason I want to do anything I can to help others feel less alone and to empower them with the right tools to overcome their mental health struggles.

From adoption, disability swimming for England to severe illness life has offered me a journey and a half so far, though from it I have gained ‘lessons skills and strengths. I am empathetic approachable and always willing to lend a listening ear, to all that need, I appreciate we are all different with different perceptions,  

Rabia

Adviser 

My name is Rabia, and I have studied bachelor in applied psychology and MSc in psychology at the University of Chester. I have worked at Chester Sexual Abuse Support Service (CSASS), as a volunteer. It has given me a lot of experience communicating with people who have been suffering or have someone who has had a tough time in their life. It has also helped me to work on my listening skills and be there for the client.
 
I have always been interested in seeing why people act and think the way they do, and how we interact with each other. Additionally, how motivation, stress, and learning affect our workplace. That was something that motivated me to study psychology in the first place.  I love to help people and I think that I can be there for you too

Charisma

I am a graduate of Psychology with Business, where I first began volunteering in various areas- from mentoring a child in care to writing letters to a prisoner abroad. I am open minded and believe that a few words go a long long way.

Zlatina

Adviser

I have always been passionate about helping others in difficult times. This is why I did my degrees in Psychology and why I would love this opportunity to be a mental health adviser. I am compassionate, I am a great listener but I am told I also give great advice when needed. As to why I want to do it, I think in these difficult times when people are forced out of their usual routine, an online “ear” that can listen to you with no judgement and almost anonymously is especially important. Especially to people who struggle with their mental health even under normal circumstances. And I want to be a part of this. I want to make a difference and I know I can do this with your platform!

Bethan

Hi, I’m Beth and I am a 3rd year Psychology student in East Yorkshire. Being someone with a past of depression and anxiety,

I understand how difficult it can be to deal with mental health, especially with nobody to talk to. The importance of mental health

often does not get the recognition it deserves, and I believe that giving people a place to come to is a step in the right direction.

This has influenced by decision to become a clinical psychologist in the future. I am a caring, friendly person and a great listener,

eager to make you feel welcome and feel not so alone.

Hi my name is Elisha, I am 19 years old studying Criminal Psychology at the University of Derby. For future job roles I wish to work with criminals and help rehabilitate them back into society, as well as giving victims of crime the support and help they need.

I myself have struggled with Anxiety disorder and Depression, but I had and still have a great support network that gets me through the struggles of life. Now I feel like its time to share the advice and support to others that need it.
