Never give up.  Hard work and determination will get you there!

 

On the 18th February 2015 I admitted myself to hospital to the mental health ward, 9C in Dunedin.  I was diagnosed with severe depression from the medical professionals.  I stayed there as an inpatient for 2 weeks before heading back into the 'real world'.

I have learnt a lot from my experiences.  I was so worried that I was being judged from a lot of people in such a small town.  The reality since arriving home over the last few months is there are so many people in the community that have experienced a mental illness and are still experiencing it.  It's ok to talk about it and it is most definitely ok to ask for help.  There are a lot more people out there than you think.  

The reason I stated this website up is to show you that you can live through and with a mental illness.  You are not alone...I promise you, you're not. 

If I can just inspire one person from this I will be happy.  Please feel free to contact me if you have a story you wish to share. 

If you have a project that you are working on and you would like to brainstorm on ideas then I would LOVE to hear from you.  x x
