Let’s face it, no matter how strong we are – life happens. Someone close to us dies, we have relationship issues, we’re lonely, our business goes through a rough patch, we struggle to get out of bed and don’t know why. When things aren’t quite right, it’s good to know where to turn for help. Its’ great that HALT are showing people where they can turn to for help.’
