I want to support my mental health
How do I choose what is right for me at this time?
1. Reflect without judgement: Consider these questions with a trusted supporter, friend, or yourself
2. Be honest: This will help you decide which options will work now and which you might like to try later.
3. No ‘wrong’ choice or failure: Just a more helpful choice for you at this time.
