They would love to hear from YOU any Qs you might have or might have had in the past about what it's like to get professional mental health support.

These could be questions around preparing for a session, the costs involved, choosing the right professional, changing supports - anything at all you think would be helpful to know or might help someone else Smiley Very Happy

Pop your questions in a reply to this thread and we will pass them on - we'll also be sure to let everyone know when the video is up!

Thanks all Heart
