Key issues in the automotive industry
Sadly, during the past year we've seen an increase in calls to our helpline for support around suicide.
We’ve put together a number of resources to support those who may be having suicidal thoughts, as well as those who may be worried about someone else at risk of suicide.
Whether you want to reduce stress levels, sleep better, or need help with anxiety and depression, we can help.
Each year, we support many people who are struggling to make ends meet for all different kinds of reasons. In fact, money worries are one of the biggest reasons why people ask us for help.
Anxiety can make certain tasks or situations seem like they are too much to take on and we can feel overwhelmed. There are ways to beat it.
