A mental health nurse in Guernsey says speaking about our emotions is empowering, not a weakness.

Lucy Bisson is encouraging islanders to be not to be ashamed and to be more open about when they are struggling.

It comes on Mental Health Awareness Week.

It's part of life for all of us. At any point, all of us are going to experience difficulties with our emotional health or mental health, so it's really important that we talk about it.

Lucy Bisson, Community Mental Health Nurse
