Having difficulties with my mental health has been traumatic for myself and my friends and family that have supported me through some really dark times. However it has shaped me into a much stronger, much more determined person and has given me a greater appreciation for the world and the wonderful people around me. As much as I would have preferred never to have suffered with my condition I am so pleased I have beaten it and that I'm finally wearing a genuine smile on my face!

People have no idea how much you hide, how much behind a smiling face is anxiety, stress and depression. From my own experience it is easy to try and cope or think you are better alone, but in reality you are just weighing yourself down. Talking really helps. Sometimes just sharing your concerns or chatting through your problems can make all the difference - it might not solve everything but it will help you realise you are not alone.

Mental illness kills more people then cancer and is a disease that effects many day by day , it is difficult for some to understand as its not a bruise or lump they can see its on the inside and can't be found on a scan to show how much its damaging a humans body but everyone must try and understand it because having depression and anxiety is a very frustrating thing.

My dad, who was once the 'life and soul', took his life in 2011 leaving behind a wife, three children, a 1 year-old grandson and my unborn son when I was 7 months pregnant. Would his illness got better if mental health wasn't a taboo and people talked and showed support...? Time to change!

I suffer from several mental health disorders, including depression, social anxiety disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder. This does not make me different from anyone else. This does not mean I will not succeed and be happy in life. I can't blame those who hold a stigma since personal experience is a powerful thing, and if you haven't experienced these disorders on almost a daily basis, you really have no idea. I will bring awareness to this world that mental illness is a serious matter and not something to be overlooked or even frowned upon. There is hope.
