At our Community Correspondent meeting this week, we had a long conversation about friendship and mental health. We talked about the friends who have seen us through tough times (many of whom were in the room), the ones who we realised weren’t worth the bother and the new pals we found along the way.
We all agreed that having experience of mental health problems had taught us some important lessons about friendship. We all had very different experiences, which we’ll be sharing over the next couple of weeks.
Watch this space for blogs and images that sum up the value- and the challenges- of friendship for our mental wellbeing.
