The internet is an amazing thing, no question.

But sometimes the sheer amount of choice can become overwhelming. This is especially true if you’re struggling with your health. The last thing you want to be doing is spending ages looking for the answers you need!

So, to try and make it easier for you all I have put together a list of resources for mental illness and migraine. 

Included in the list are websites, apps, helplines, books and anything else I’ve used and wanted to share.

I’ll be adding more to these lists as I discover new resources so check back often!

If you have a particular resource you think is awesome and it’s not on the list, drop me an email at karen@daftscribe.com and I’ll check it out.
