Courtenay

Courtenay

After being diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder in November, I have been shocked with the discrimination and stigma that comes along with this diagnosis, and various mental health issues in day to day life. Just like any other form of discrimination in our society, this needs to stop. Just because you can't physically see pain, this does not mean it's not there. No one disguises their broken leg because they are scared what people might think, so why should I hide my disorder?

MikaT

I've come to realise why some people do think that this illness is "just all in the head" because they can't see what's going on my head. And they *never* will. I even find it hard and frustrating trying to explain how I feel even to my parents, let alone the rest of my relatives. Let alone people in the public who maybe even don't want to understand what mental health illnesses are all about.
But I pledge to give it a try. As difficult as it may be.

In 2013 I was hit by a void and utter hopelessness. Even my grandchildren whom I love so much did not ease my pain. Anxiety, despair, empty of all positive thoughts. I felt that this mental anguish would never go. If I went to sleep I woke up with the same pain.
I called for help. It took time to find the right medication. and talking until the mental pain started to ease. At last I slept and woke up with hope.

Pizzapie75

I have suffered mental health problems all of my life and I am 40 now. What I find hard is working in a doctor's surgery, where I had a melt-down and stormed out for something that was said to me (non-work related), and since my return its been hard. I thought returning to work was mean to be made 'easy'.... Being treated like a leper is not 'easy'. Being treated like a criminal is not 'easy'. Being ignored and issued a final written warning is not 'easy'. I just want a break.

Hindi madali ang depresyon. Hindi malalaman ng isang tao na siya ay depressed at kung napapansin man niya ito, madalas ay tinatago lamang siya o tinatanggi, o iniisip na "phase in life" lang, o kaya baka pagod lang sa dami-dami ng kailangang ayusin. Kaya, para sa layuning ito, pinapangako ko na ibabahagi ang aking karanasan ukol sa depresyon upang mas maiintindihan at mauunawaan ng mga tao ito, at maaari ding makatulong sa pag-iwas sa diskriminasyon at pagbabalewala sa depresyon.

My depression is more about self doubt. I don't understand how anyone could like me let alone love me. I don't think I am smart or pretty or even likeable. I get confused and surprised when I do something smart. I never believe anyone when they tell me I am beautiful or pretty. I wish I could make it stop. I do try and not think about it but it never goes away completely.

I will share my mental health story to help others understand mental health.

I will be more open and share my mental health story to spread awareness especially with younger people so they can learn to understand mental health. I will also ask friends how they are to make sure they are ok!

I pledge not to be embarrassed or ashamed of my mental health problems and to share my story with others

Valex

I have cared for my partner for four years now. He suffers with severe depression and generalised anxiety, and he's getting worse. If the stigma around mental illness were absent, there might be a chance that mental health services in the NHS would no longer be the poor relation, and my poor man could get some effective help. And I could get more support than just a counsellor and my overworked GP.

Charlotte

I will challenge mental health stigma and discrimination when I see it.
