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
