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 will ask Time To Change to share it if they think it's appropriate.

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!!

Sarah

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.

cat

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.
