Do you know someone who is struggling with mental health, a friend, family member, colleague or maybe yourself?
I’m not a psychiatrist, psychologist nor do I have a piece of paper saying I am a qualified ‘Mental health Guru’ but what I do have is REAL, RAW and RELATABLE feelings, emotions and experiences with mental illness because I’ve been there, I’ve lived it and I’ve survived.
- Diagnosed with Major Depression, Severe Panic and Anxiety.
- Treated for over 2 years by multiple professionals and dragged through the Work Cover System.
- A long list of therapies and courses.
- Medication after medication after medication after medication.
It has been a rollercoaster of emotions, I am going to share the good, the bad and the shit no one speaks about because of the fear of being judged.
Please always remember that my inbox is open, I am willing to answer any questions and give support where I can.
I hope that my blog can help one person feel less alone.
Spreading awareness around mental health is something I am very passionate about and I hope that I can help normalise the ‘stigma’ around mental illness.
