I lost my brother recently to mental health issue very early in his turmoil of a life. I love him and miss him so much. People always pretended not to have stima's towards him. But no wanted to spend time with him. Even thou Trevor was kind, loving, funny, a good friend and an amazing brother. I want people to make friends with these people and keep them in their lives it make a huge difference, stops them from falling. They are worth it. "They" make amazing friends just give them a chance.
When I was 12 (going in to secondary school) my aniexty was horrendous, i endured this throughout my entire school life in to my Adult life. When i was 22 (10 years later) I was diagonised with Aniexty and Depression. I had NO IDEA aniexty was a even a thing at that age. I want to help people so people don't have to wait 10 years to get treatment.
Having recently lost my dad after he took his own life at 70 just 9 weeks ago, I pledge to help both families touched by suicide and those in need of support to prevent it. I have also experienced mental health related illnesses over the years and strive to support others in overcoming such difficulties by helping them to break free from their own silence.
I have suffered from mental health issues for the majority of my life. Although life has been difficult, I have experience with the fear of discrimination and the stigmas against those with mental health issues. I want no one to feel as alone as I do, so I pledge to help others as best I can.
A while ago I was asked, in school, to make a speech. A short simply speech about something I loved. The first thing that came to mind was my anxiety. It's to something I love but I thought that talking about it to my class would help them understand what anxiety really is about. This way, I could talk them out of contributing the stigma of anxiety disorders.
Recently informed I am living with Bipolar Disorder and General Anxiety Disorder. Mental health has made me question myself and who I am. I doubted myself and my abilities for a long time, but now I am growing more and more confident that I can do anything in life. :) I want to raise awareness, end stigmatisation and encourage more people to seek help/advice and come forward!
