If you or someone you know needs help, please talk to someone you trust or go and see your GP. There is also a relatively new portal produced by the Australian Government which helps consumers find support, from 24/7 organisations like Lifeline and Kids Helpline, websites like Beyond Blue, to mental health learning modules online, and useful apps.
