I am fundraising for the Mayor of Walsall's Chosen Charity W P H counselling and education services.
After battling with Mental health problems from the age of 15, only I know too well what it's like to live a life in secret, on the outside you look fine, you dress fine, you speak fine, you work fine but on the inside you are in piecies, falling apart, crumbling & crying for help but don't know who and where to turn too. I struggled to do the basic things that we take for granted such as get out of bed, eat & drink, I felt lonely and detached from life despite having really good people around me. I struggled to fulfil my dreams & ambtions.
Your too embarrassed to speak up or speak out because of the stigma attached to Mental health.
As time went on my mental health problems had become more severe and I was put on high doses of medication but despite this medication I lost the desire & hope to live and took an overdose and tried to commit suicide on more then one occasion.
I was fortunate to access all the help I could get via the mental health team, counselling, therapy and the support of my nearest and dearest family and friends.
It took a lot to come out and share this story with the hope of helping others in need, with all the pressures & stress in life it's so important we have a confidential service that we can turn too.
For a moment I would like you to stop and think of others who are less fortunate then us, who have no one to turn too, for all those fighting a battle to live but give up hope, for all those you meet every day yet don't know why they are facing or dealing with.
For that reason I ask you to Join me in donating generously to a cause that helps save lives.
Thank you for reading my story, next time you find out someone close to you is suffering, please spare some time to sit down and listen to them, for you that might be nothing, for them it will be mean everything!
