/ Support

 

If you’re here, you may have heard something on-air that may be causing you distress or may have raised uncomfortable feelings. There are a number of people and organisations you can turn to for support at a time like this. Looking for support is a healthy way of dealing with your feelings, and is a powerful way to help you get back on top of things. Everyone needs to talk sometimes!
