Everyday Things

Our days are made up of everyday things - getting up in the morning, going to work or school , making dinner, caring for a loved one, being healthy and much more. When you have a mental illness, or live with someone who does, those everyday things can sometimes seem overwhelming. The small things that make up a day suddenly seem too big to fit.

Friends, family and carers can be an invaluable source of support. Here, carers and individuals living with mental illness share what inspires them, and what keeps them going.
