Story

Hi my names Jess, im a mum of two, jake 5 and Phoebe 11 months. After having phoebe i suffered with post natal depression. I felt worthless, like a failure and a burden on my family.

In Febuary this year i attempted to take my own life. I was in a very dark and numb place. I could only describe it as being under water looking out on everyone else enjoying their lives. I couldnt feel pain or happiness. I was so lost. With help from my family and the lancashire crisis team i made the first step of accepting that i wasnt okay and admitted myself to the Brockington Mother and Baby unit in Stafford. This place was amazing.the staff were amazing. They made me feel like i wasnt alone and that it is more common than i at first thought. It was okay to not be okay

Fast forward 4 months and im a completely different woman. Having post natal depression has changed me for the better. And now i want to spread more awarness about mental health in hope that people will reconise the signs and not be ashamed to ask for help.

I have put notes of Love and Hope around Preston Docks, Avenham Park along the River and Blackpool Prom and Pier. All these places are real hotspots for people choosing to end their life. I put the notes at the docks on the 29th June 2018, i returned on the 5th july and after a week they had already faded and blown off. I hoping to get something abit more permanent.

With your donations, we want to be able to expand this campaign to other areas so the money will be used to purchase more material initially. Beyond that, it's difficult to tell at moment. We have only been doing this for a couple of weeks and the response has been amazing and greatly surpassed our expectation.
