I don’t know at what point I started to think about mental illness and the constant battle that those with these illnesses face on a daily basis but I started to tell my story through my blog Sad Mum Happy Mum. I was and remain determined that nobody should have to face the issues, barriers, lack of help and support that I have faced in my lifetime because I have a mental illness, and I didn’t want this kind of treatment to continue for anyone. So I started my blog, I write about my experience, my life with depression with the aim of increasing awareness of mental illness, breakdown the stigma attached to mental illness, and to provide a safe environment in which people with depression can feel they can tell their own story and know that they are not alone in their fight through mental illness.
