Thank you for stopping by and

welcome to
The Lily-Jo Project!

” My name is Lily-Jo, I am a singer/songwriter from Manchester in the UK and I am also a trained Counsellor.After meeting so many people at gigs and hearing them tell me some of their life stories, I was moved to create this site. This online mental health resource is designed to help you to help yourself and others. On these pages you can learn more about how you may be feeling and discover suitable, practical advice.

As you read through what I’ve written and watch the videos, I want you to remember that you are not on your own! There are other people going through similar things to you. I also want you to realise that there is so much YOU can do at home in order to help yourself feel that little bit better. “

Your mental health resource

In this high-pressured society, it is estimated that one in three of us may have times of depression, anxiety, stress, or other issues. So if you are struggling, please remember that others feel like you too. Mental health no longer has the negative stigma it did in the past. People now understand much more about it and lots of help is available. I hope this resource will be a massive strength to you as you help yourself get braver and stronger.

I am so passionate about you living your best life possible and having a healthy body and a healthy mind!

The site includes practical advice, top tips, as well as interviews from brave individuals who share how they overcame their issues. Some names have been changed to protect confidentiality. You will also find links to national services for further help at the bottom of every page, links to my recommended resources, plus much more.

Some of the mental health issues that we have listed here have similar solutions and although I have tried to separate each issue into a specific topic, its not always as clear cut as that. Someone suffering from an eating disorder can also be anxious, depressed, and may also self-harm. Take your time to explore each section that applies to you, or someone you know. I have found that the unanimous favourite “top tip” is, speaking out, and telling someone you trust how you feel.

It is so important not to face your problems on your own.

Please do get in touch and let me know your thoughts via the ‘get involved’ link at the bottom of every page.

I’d be so interested to hear from you,

Lots of love,
