You can skip all this nonsense if you want and dive on in here.

I tried to take my own life in 2015. It was a pretty crazy experience so I’m using my story to help raise awareness and encourage the conversation about mental health.

The views and opinions expressed on this page reflect those of the author, but don’t get too mad about it.

I am in no way a trained medical professional so if you are making serious life choices based on what you read here, just stop it right now friend.

Book yourself an appointment with your GP, speak to your HR department, whatever the formal process is rather than listening to my nonsense and acting on it.

‘Stop it right now friend’

Me, just now

Take a read through ‘First things first…’ for a little bit of exposition. I’m here to show that you can live with a mental health illness, there is light at the end of the tunnel and you deserve to live a happy life. We are in this together!

If you are in an immediate crisis call the emergency services (999) or The Samaritans (116 123) straight away and keep yourself alive.

Otherwise, enjoy! Share, comment, follow, subscribe and all the rest.
