As someone who had to seek professional help and support, I fully understand how difficult it can be to admit to your family and those around you that you have a problem and how difficult it is to seek help. To anyone out that is currently finding day to day life a challenge, I can assure you that by seeking proper support and assistance, there is hope and light at the end of the tunnel!

We all face different problems in this world and I wish that family and friends would understand how difficult it is to cope everyday. Medication doesn't make mental health problems disappear. We have to fight them everyday. I am begging for help and the Nurses listen but the Consultants and Drs don't. I won't be in this world for much longer.

My own son has suffered badly with mental health problems. Two friends have also. I hope that by talking about it, it can become a subject that we are no longer afraid to mention, It is a real illness and it should not be ignored. There needs to be more help available and much quicker counselling for desperate people who are forced to suffer in silence through lack of resources. It is TIME TO CHANGE and put mental health up to top priority.

Depression as we know can be a killer, having had depression for most of my life I have found technics to cover it up!! Good rn't i!!!! ?

Lozza

When it comes to mental health people are shit, it takes someone famous to suffer for them to realise that its a growing problem. People cant help how they feel and they cant change it by themselves they need support, to know people care about them not to feel judged or targeted but to feel wanted and not to feel worthless. Because no one is worthless, everyone is something.
Peace!
