Stories From My Inbox…

So what do we have in store this week?

In honour of Mental Health Awareness Day I want to put some focus on Mental Health this week as it is so important. As someone who suffers on and off from low mood, depression and low self esteem I cannot stress enough that there is help out there for people if and when you need it.

It takes a lot of guts to ask for help and you have to be ready for it when you do but learning how to cope with your feelings and developing ways to recognise triggers and deal with them is invaluable to helping you through the episodes.

There is no shame in suffering from depression or any form of mental illness, more people than you can imagine suffer from it but many don’t feel comfortable to talk about it.

I was given a course in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy online by my GP which helped me to learn about the things that bring on my episodes of low mood and depression and how I can recognise them and work to move through them.

I took the online course as the waiting list for face to face therapy meant I would have to wait longer for help and I wanted to feel better and not wait. I was assigned a Therapist who monitored my coursework and arranged times to call and speak to me so I wasn’t alone and had someone to guide me. It was run by the Healthy Minds service in my area, ask your GP how you can access the service in your area.

Don’t suffer in silence, be strong and ask for help, don’t hide from the people you love, let them help you when you need it.
