I know that depression and anxiety can be overcome. I know we don't have to suffer in silence. I know that others can recover in the way I have. There is no cure but there are ways to manage and cope and live a rewarding, joyful life. Believe that this can happen for you too. Please ask for and accept help for this crippling illness. It's never too late.
I want to encourage people to talk about mental health so that we can remove this shame and secrecy around it. The more open we' re all about it, the more people out there will be able to seek the help and support they need. I waited too long to speak to someone and want to make sure that others don't have the same experience. We should all pledge our support to end mental health discrimination.
I will always challenge discrimination against people with mental health problems wherever I encounter it. Its time that we treat mental and physical health equally. No one chooses to have mental health problems. Just because it can't be seen, that does not mean it should be treated with any less importance than any physical condition,
People need to support and help people with BPD more its a hard mental illness to have as not many people understand. But i have first hand experience and sometimes i feel as if i cant cope. We all need help sometimes. But some people dont know how to ask for it dont be ashamed of who you are be proud of it. As it makes you unique and sometimes you'll be the life and soul of the party :) keep smiling everyone ♡♡♡♡
I will listen sensitively, with an open mind to those around me. I will let people know that I am here to listen, if ever they feel able to talk about their mental health, and reassure them that they are not alone. I will promote research in to mental health and support mental health charities.
I already challenge mental health stigma and discrimination whenever I find it anywhere, from the media discourse to my closest friends, relatives and acquaintances' words and speeches. And I am definitely willing to keep on being a "mental health activist" for life! Support and help people with mental health stories, but also support and help those who cannot understand: awareness is the fastest way to change :)
