Happiful Magazine

Thanks to the lovely people at Happiful Magazine who have sponsored  Sydney to attend the Mental Health First Aid Course this July.  We will  be bringing you some special episodes on the course as Becky has  completed the young people’s Mental Health First Aid Course.

If you haven’t heard of Happiful Magazine before here is what they are trying to do:

Their mission is to create a  healthier, happier, more sustainable society. Aiming to provide  informative, inspiring and topical stories about mental health and  wellbeing. They want to break the stigma of mental health in society,  and to shine a light on the positivity and support that should be  available for everyone, no matter their situation. The e-magazine is  free. Hard copies are available, see their website for more details.
