And finally from me … a clip that I discovered on You Tube that summed up a particular relationship for me.

There is a lot of stuff out there on mental illness so beware and choose reliable sources. Mental health is no different than physical health yet the stigmas often get in the way of understanding the causes and more importantly the strategy’s that can be adopted to cope.
