Drop the act

Too tough to talk? It’s time to drop the act and reach out for help if you need it. Incolink counselling is here to support members and their families.

Text that reads 'Let's drop the act' in bubble writing

Sometimes life can become overwhelming. Challenges at work, home or in life can be stressful and difficult to deal with.

We’re encouraging you to Drop the act when it comes to your mental health and seek help if you need it.

While it might seem easier to pretend everything’s okay that won’t help solve the issues you’re facing.

It’s brave to be vulnerable, it takes courage and strength to face things headfirst.

Next time someone asks you if you’re alright, try being honest with them about what’s going on. They may not be able to fix what’s going on, but they might lend an ear and support you through it.

How Counselling can help

A problem shared is a problem halved.

No matter the problem talking with someone can lighten the load.

Counselling can help with a range of different challenges that life can throw at us including:

  • Relationship difficulties
  • Stress, anxiety and depression
  • Other mental health issues
  • Feelings of suicide
  • Grief and loss
  • Alcohol and other drugs support
Life isn’t always easy; but thanks to Incolink’s free counselling service, I know there’s someone I can talk to if I need help.
