Lack of understanding breeds fear and encourages stigma. If more of the general public, medical professionals and individuals with lived experience took the time, and found the courage and honesty within them to share their stories, society would soon realise that there is nothing to be afraid of and that most lived mental health issues result in a rare and precious self awareness, which is powerful and liberating, and something that many could learn from and benefit from in many ways.

Depression is a dreadful thing to have to deal with.
Often you can feel very alone and isolated.

The little things make so much of a difference. A phone call, going out for meal just having someone to talk to makes so much of a difference.

Often people suffer in silence and put on a brave face.
By people being able to help and showing kindness makes a huge difference and I would like to help in anyway I can
