This blog is my own personal look at issues in mental health. It will be a chance for me to let you know what I think about how people with a mental health problem are treated as well as a look at my own personal battles with mental health issues.
So that you know, my current diagnosis is Mixed Depressive and Anxiety Disorder, and Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (formerly Borderline Personality Disorder). These are only my latest diagnoses in a long list over the years. I also self harm and so have views on this side of life too.
I have attended Time To Change’s StoryCamp in 2015 and have recently become a Time To Change Champion. I am also an ambassador for a charity called The OLLIE Foundation.
