My name is Kealie and I have experienced depression and anxiety. Kealie's blog

My illness affects many aspects of my life, including work, education, family, friendships and relationships.

My greatest sources of support are those special people who listen and understand.

My hope for the future is to see the end of stigma against mental illness.

I'm taking 5 on Time To Talk Day because for every person who sees that they are not alone, we can start to make a difference.

This blog is part of the Time to Talk Day 2015 #Take5ToBlog initiative.
