Tomorrow (10 October) is World Mental Health Day and a reminder to us all to check in on a mate. Seeing who's struggling isn't always obvious, but chances are one in three of your mates needs to talk.

The signs someone may be struggling may be subtle but some common signs are changes in behavior, sleep patterns, energy levels and mood.
