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 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.
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.
