I fell mentally ill at the age of 15 due to the fact that my mum left me at 5 yrs old and that has been hard to deal with.

I do have my struggles with mental health especially with my moods which have a big impact on my life. I do feel I can deal with it because I take medication and am in remission.

What has helped me with my condition is talking to people and being open and honest about it.

My advice for others is to try to talk to people or write down how you are feeling.”
