A blog is something that so many people can get support from anonymously. So many people find it hard to accept they need help due to what others may think, but nobody needs to know that you’re reading a blog, but that blog can help and provide support to so many people at the same time”.

– Alisha Marsden, Mental Health Support Volunteer

“Blogs are a voice for people to share with others and get information and messages across that they feel passionate about, it will be a wonderful addition to the amazing resources Willow already have!”

-Young Person from the Support Group

“I love blogs because some shout out to me and others not so much. Being able to relate to what others think and feel is really important to me, it helps me feel like I belong

-Karen Little, Willow Project Manager
