It’s 8pm on Tuesday 10th October 2017 and I have been blessed with a few hours to myself to think and reflect. I hadn’t planned on writing a blog post when I woke up this morning but then I realised that today is World Mental Health Day and it was important that I did. Because not only is everyone around the world united in talking about mental health in these these select twenty-four hours but every one of us is making a small contribution to ending the stigma surrounding mental health issues.

Here’s a reminder for anyone out there struggling: you are trying your best. Don’t beat yourself up for not feeling good enough. Battling your mental health doesn’t make you weak; battling your mental health makes you strong.
