World Mental Health Day: 10 October

Today, 10 October, is World Mental Health Day. NSW Council on Intellectual Disability on Facebook published a timely reminder of it's print resources on 5 October 2016:
Worried. Sad. Angry. Scared. Upset. 
We all have these feelings sometimes. If these feelings last 2 weeks or more or keep coming back it maybe a mental health issue. 
NSW CID has Mental Health Fact Sheets - good info and and great conversation starters around what can be a sensitive topic. 
Ask CID can also help with information and referral to Mental Health services
