I want ppl to understand that just because we have a mental illness, we are not crazy or dangerous. Some can be, but not all of us are. We are normal, everyday ppl who have a harder time than others handling the stress of life. We may have to take medication to help us. ppl with heart disease have to take medication to help them, it's not any different. We just have a stigma attached to us. I pledge to help take that stigma away.

My mum has been suffering with schizophrenia for as long as I can remember. I felt alone and like the world was against me. But with the support of my family, friends and local community I feel like a new person. Don't turn a blind eye to mental health, rather embrace and welcome it with open arms! Sending me love to all those who are suffering. Thank you.

Polly

Polly

It's so very difficult to watch your children struggle and miss out on the normal everyday lives of being a teenager. It's lonely, cruel and very lowering and needing a friend who really understands is so hard to find at their ages. They are scared of never feeling better and afraid of who they will be in the future. Invisible is how one of them told me they felt. I would just love to see them happy and smile again. I will continue to try to help people understand how it feels.
