I'm tired of feeling ashamed about my mental health issues, society needs to change and allow for people to be as open about their mental health problems as they are with their physical problems. Just because you can't see an illness doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Keeping everything bottled up makes it worse, you wouldn't expect someone with a physical illness to keep it to themselves and let it go untreated, and the same attitude needs to be taken with mental health.

"I have had depression before" Is a phrase that i have heard many times, unfortunately it doesnt go away.
I have ignored it for many years and resulted to different illegal drugs and drink in order to divert it, which is not the answer.
I lived in London and i lost my flat, job and myself.
I am now going back to Uni to study Psycology in order to help people similar to ourselves fight it.
Do not suffer in silence
Every cloud has a silver lining
Time to Change.
