Mental Health: In Our Own Words

"The hardest thing about having a mental health problem is people not realising that there's something wrong with you and that you can be really ill even if you look absolutely fine."

“The hardest thing about having a mental health problem is people not realising that there’s something wrong with you and that you can be really ill even if you look absolutely fine.”

We often shy away from talking about our problems. We do not express ourselves well enough. We hold a lot of things in. Many suffering from a mental illness don’t talk about the underlying issues. They don’t talk about the reasons how their mental illness developed. They don’t talk about what triggers them. They don’t talk about their fears and day-to-day troubles.

There are many cultural and social stigmas associated with mental health. We need to raise awareness of mental health, help those struggling with their mental health and provide them with more support.

Help us alter perceptions of mental health everywhere. Help us help you.
