Hello! 

So - in a separate thread a few other players discussed having a Mental Health thread, so that we could share resources! While we do have my usual Mental Health Check in Thread - that is more geared towards discussion. This thread will specifically be resources that are listed, so that they are easily accessible for anyone in need of a little more support or some professional support. 

As always, my inbox is always open and I am ALWAYS here for y'all! But, I am not a professional - and I think it's important that we are able to point y'all towards professionals if you need that advice. 

Now - I am in the US. So many of the resources that I am aware of are geared towards the US. But, my hopes are that other players can help to share the resources that they are aware of in other countries as well!
