Mental health condition stories...

Each condition is based around 6 people's real life experiences, however to preserve their anonymity we have changed their names and used model photography.

Cookies

A cookie is simply a technology for remembering something about you. Without cookies, a website is like a goldfish who loses its memory every time you visit a new page. Once you visit a new page, it doesn’t remember who you are. To find out more about cookies, explore this website.

We don't collect your information on this website, and therefore don't identify you personally. We use cookies as part of services by Google Analytics, which allows us to monitor the website usage anonymously.

For example, if we find people aren't finding certain pages or content (such as support or help information), we can change the design inline with this feedback to improve the user experience.

If you have any questions about our cookie usage, feel free to contact us.
