Look out for Togetherall, a service which provides safe, anonymous online support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Free peer to peer and professional online support with trained healthcare professionals, and resources to help people manage their wellbeing:

Wellbeing moment of the week:

The Stolen Orange

by Brian Patten

When I left I stole an orange
I kept it in my pocket
It felt like a warm planet

Everywhere I went smelt of oranges
Whenever I got into an awkward situation
I'd take out the orange and smell it

And immediately on even dead branches I saw
The lovely and fierce orange blossom
That smells so much of joy

When I went out I stole an orange
It was a safeguard against imagining
There was nothing bright or special in the world.

Get outside if you can today/ this week -- it really helps:
