For Halloween we decided to launch a campaign to remind people that there is nothing scary about talking about mental health. We asked our friends, family and wider community to share their experiences and the benefits they’ve felt from speaking out.
I used to look back at the last three years, to the start of my mental health journey, where I was first struck by the disease that almost killed me on many occasions.
I am a mental health advocate. I live it, I breath it and I will work endlessly to spread word about the cause.
Trigger warning: suicide, depression, self harm. By any normal definition not dying before you hit the age of 18 is an incredibly good thing. But nonfiction doesn’t care for a neat definition.
