7cups is a site that you can use if you feel like you need to talk and get things off your chest, but have no one to talk to. The site trains volunteer listeners (I am one myself!) They also offer therapy as well, which you have to pay for but to talk to a listener is totally free, also you can train to be one for free and help people!

HeadMeds

Headmeds (ran by youngminds) is an excellent site if you need information about medication for your mental health. I used the website when I got told the anti-depressants I may be on. I don’t recommend looking up side effects. However, the website has good information which might help you! The site also has information on conditions, such as anorexia, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and a load more!
