We all feel low at times in our life. We can feel like no-one understands us, that others are putting too much pressure on us or that our friends are more popular or better than us.

Tips for Coping

It’s important that you don’t try to deal with depression or bipolar disorder all on your own. Reach out to family and friends, and where help and support is offered, take it. Remember – you’re not alone.
