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
Hannah– “I live in England and I’m currently studying German at university.
I’m in recovery but still suffer from generalised anxiety disorder, depression and emetophobia and a resulting ednos.
Sarah– “I’m 27 and originally from Vienna/Austria, but currently living in Nottingham/UK, where I’m working towards a doctorate in Psychology – later on I want to specialise in Forensic Psychology. Previously to that, I studied Opera Singing.
I have been diagnosed with PTSD among other mental health issues in the past, but after two years of therapy consider myself fully recovered. I’m still seeing a therapist occasionally, though, to clean up the mess everyday life leaves in our minds and bodies.
As a victim of sexual assault, I feel very passionate about raising awareness about this topic, as well as feminism and empowering women. In my free-time I like to spend time with my dog, write, work out 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 firstname.lastname@example.org”
Sian– “I’m 28 years old, living on my own near London and work in the city in the Events/Arts Industry.
Caitlin– “I’m 27 and living in Derbyshire.
I have suffered from depression and anxiety since my early teens, and two years ago I gave up work to recover, after bullying in the workplace affected my mental health so much I became suicidal. I’m in recovery now and working somewhere I love – but it’s an ongoing process and I believe I will always struggle with my mental health. However I am still optimistic – I have learnt so much about how to look after myself and my mental health.
In the past Counselling has been a huge part in my recovery. For me, medication helps, as well as yoga and mindfulness. I try to be really open about my mental health, because the more we talk about it, the less it is a source of shame. No one should EVER feel ashamed about mental illness; it’s real, it’s scary, and sadly it’s all too common.
After my experience with bullying I just want to spread a little bit of kindness and positivity, and support people who may be going through similar struggles with their mental health.
