Poor mental health can influence the way we live our lives on a day to day basis. It can impact our relationships, our work. It can destabilise us, affect our confidence and prevent us from functioning in a way which we feel able to cope and manage everyday life.
Many people living with mental health problems experience a sense of loneliness and consequently feel isolated from the world around them. As the isolation increases, they feel less connected, and therefore, their contribution to the valuable relationships around them can become diminished.
