Living with depression, anxiety and Borderline Personality disorder, I know first hand. I promise I will always listen, listening is the greatest love anyone can give. I also will not judge others before I get to know them. You never know what someone is going through, nor can you compare yourself to them, everyone is unique but should be treated with dignity and respect.
I pledge to share my creativity to inspire others to try it as a healing tool, to encourage a positive outlet for communication of mental health, to speak out about my poor treatment from NHS mental health services to ensure that others get the right help much sooner, to be bold and unashamed - to use my bad experiences for better things- to inspire positive change.
I promise to be there for my family, friends and total strangers
I promise I will try my everything to save a life
I promise I will stay strong myself, so I can help others
I promise to be always care and never to stop
I promise I will stand up for any mental discrimination
I promise I will fight and always give my 100%
I promise I won't give up
Please promise me, You ...
Remember no matter what you are feeling know that you are loved and always will be.
I have a deep and sincere message to share with million of human beings living with these symptoms and mental illnesses.
i conquered the mental illnesses i was living with.
Now my duty as a fellow being is to help and give hand by helping people freeing themselves.
Want to participate and make a significant impact, start here:
I have been a teacher of English as a Foreign Language since 2006. I have frequently suffered from poor mental health - depression, anxiety and panic disorder. An interview I have given about mental health and English Language Teaching will be published around Time to Talk Day for other teachers, friends and former colleagues - to see. I will ask Time To Change to share it if they think it's appropriate.
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child Article 9 (separation from parents) states that
Children must not be separated from their parents against their will unless it is in their best interests (for example, if a parent is hurting or neglecting a child).
Children whose parents have separated have the right to stay in contact with both parents, unless this could cause them harm.

I'm 28 mother of 4 and I think people who work with someone who suffers from mental health and their children should be trained better children's family resource centre Stonehaven Aberdeenshire is disgusting I have the paperwork . Had social working sit in a meeting and shout out look this wot she does she goes crazy she's mental that was out mouth of a social worker shocking .
I have Borderline Personality Disorder, this doesn't mean I'm 'crazy' or 'attention seeking', it's a serious mental illness that is real. I didn't quite understand how to explain my diagnosis to friends and family at first, but with researching and the correct support I was able to open up and make them aware. I have been in hospital numerous of times because of crisis' and psychosis but I can now happily say I am in recovery with lots of help from my mental health team, friends and family. Keep fighting! Time to end stigma!!
I've suffered from depression and eating disorders for twenty years - and (as you will all know) staying alive is bloody hard. I've sunk (again!) right now, so my pledge is two-fold. Firstly to get my head above surface level and get treading water again! Secondly, once I reach that stage, to stop biting my tongue and to tell it like it is. I can't stand the thought of a single other person enduring this (probably terminal) fight on a daily basis. Things MUST change.
Talking about Mental Health, is so important. Not just for us, but for everyone else also. We should be a lot more open about Mental Health, especially online, no one should ever feel alone, isolated and afraid. So let's talk about our feelings, so we can show everyone that they're not alone.
I have a mental illness and i have experienced first hand how discrimination can affect your confidence in yourself and your abilities when you are recovering from a mental illness. I have also seen how people can treat the members of your family, just for having a illness, just for being different. Its time to tear down the walls and change for the better. Be supportive and understanding towards our fellow human beings.
As somebody who has needed - and richly benefited from - support and understanding to handle my own emotional and psychological challenges previously, I pledge to use that empathy and experience to raise awareness, confront stigma and help inspire a change in attitudes towards mental health issues.
