Believe is a mental health initiative created by Sam Frost and her sister Kristine. Our ultimate goal with this site is to shine some much needed light on mental health and pave our way together with you through the darkness, so that we may all become the best versions of ourselves.
We believe in the power and strength of sisterhood, where we encourage women and young girls to stand side by side and build each other up with support, kindness and acceptance. This website is a safe digital home for you, to connect, inspire, educate and provide guidance to all of you who may be suffering. No matter how lonely it feels sometimes, always remember you are never alone.
We look forward to growing, learning and supporting each other every step of the way.
In this section, we have written about some of the biggest emotional challenges of our time. Our hope is that you will come to not only better understand yourself – if you relate to any of these challenges – but also the people in your life who might be suffering. In this way, you will be empowered to notice the signs in either yourself or someone else, and take action before it truly takes hold and becomes detrimental.
These stories have been sent to us from our lovely readers. We hope that these heartfelt words can show you that you’re not alone in your experience; that no matter what you’re going through, someone else — somewhere else — is probably going through the same thing.

As far back as I can remember, I have always had some form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. When I was younger my family and I referred to it as my ‘habits’ that I would do – close every single drawer and cupboard in the house, check under my bed and out the window a certain amount of times each night before I went to bed, say ‘love ya’ to my family every time they left the house, etc etc etc etc etc. You know, the usual stuff carefree kids do! If I didn’t do these things I genuinely thought something terrible was going to happen to my family. But, I was a kid and this was just a ‘funny’ and ‘quirky’ thing I did... right?
