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.

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).
I have two therapists: a ‘’regular one’’ who follows me for general mental health, and the other is specialized in CBT : cognitive behavioral therapy, and who sends me on exposure tasks between each session (every 2-3 weeks).
I feel very passionate about raising awareness on mental health and ending stigmas society has, and this is why I joined this work with Kay.
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 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.
Now I’m twenty-three and I can thankfully say I no longer suffer from mental illness. It was a long journey, but I use my story and my recovery to help others see that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I even wrote a book about the whole thing! Recovery is scary and difficult, but it’s worth it! I’ve never been happier and I’m so grateful I am here today to share my story.
