So today, 10th October, is World Mental Health Day. Not many people are aware of this day nor are many people very aware about mental health.
I could go on and on about this topic as it’s something close to my heart but I’m going to keep this short and sweet.
Post-natal depression and anxiety is something I have first hand experience in. I suffered with post-natal after my second born and I am an anxiety sufferer - have been seen my teenage years when I used to have panic attacks.
There is such a huge taboo around these subjects when there shouldn’t be.
Not when something as simple as talking can help. Does help. Will help.
And those who haven’t suffered and who don’t really understand just need to be there, need to listen, need to care.
Talking, opening up, admitting you feel a certain way helps. It changed my life.
It can change yours too.
