Useful resources

Handy info

If you’d like to take charge of your situation, but you’re not quite ready for in-person support, this page is for you. We’ve gathered a collection of useful self-help tools and resources to help you ‘DIY’.


Sometimes, the best way to start getting on top of an issue is to understand it, and how it affects you. From there, there are often simple techniques you can try yourself to manage your situation – whether it’s breathing exercises to alleviate anxiety, or communication tips to deal with family conflict.


We hope you find these tools useful, and remember, if you need extra help, we have a range of other services available such as support groups, counselling and our 24-hour phone line.
