Ambassadors

I started this page by myself, but as it began growing I realised that I might need to reach out for help. I am consistently growing as a person and everything I do is progressing with me. That’s why I found some wonderful mental health advocates to help spread the mental health awareness through the MH Stories platform.

Meet the MH Stories Ambassadors

Lulu– “I live with social phobias, as well as other various phobias, some of which can be quite debilitating such as emetophobia & scatophobia (respectively, fears of throwing up, and of feces).

I have recurring depression, and struggle with mood swings embedded in my cyclothymia. Most of my mental illnesses stem from traumatic events and I also suffer from CPTSD (complex post-traumatic stress disorder).

Sarah “I’m 26, living in Vienna and studying Psychology, specialising in Forensics. Previously to that, I studied opera singing.

I’ve been diagnosed with quite a few mental health issues, but consider myself recovered for the most part. I’m still seeing a therapist regularly, though, to fully recover.

As a victim of sexual assault, rape and general over-sexualisation from a very young age, I feel very passionate about raising awareness about these topics. Rape is never the victim’s fault.

In my free-time I like to spend time with my dog, sing, write and travel.

I’m always here to listen to you, if you ever need to talk, vent or if you have any questions. You can contact me in English or German on Instagram or email me at sarahomh@yahoo.com

Sarah’s story

Gillian– “I’m 21, and I live in US. I have been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and depression. I also believe personally that I suffer with agoraphobia and disassociation.
I am on medication and go to counseling at least every other week. And I’m back at school, commuting from home. I’ve been working really, really hard this past year to be able to reach this point, from exposure therapy to natural remedies and yoga.
My goodness, it hasn’t been easy! No where near. But it has totally been worth it to get to this point. And now I get to share my story and join in an amazing community of people who encourage one another and build eachother up.
