Stacey's Story

I grew up in a house with domestic violence and developed multiple mental illnesses. At 18 years old, I was diagnosed with depression, anxiety, anorexia and a personality disorder. I don't know if I would have become ill without the violence but it definitely contributed. Becoming an adult is meant to be the best part of your life but for me it was the start of a downward spiral.

Rachel's Story

On a Monday morning, 5th November 2018, I got the worse phone call of my life. My dad died so suddenly. Words still can't describe how I feel because I still feel so empty and numb. I cannot accept it right now. So I went doctors and have been diagnosed with depression. I have never experienced this before. Just a horrible dark cloud on me all the time feel so lonely so isolated.

Heidi's story

I was 35 at the time so it felt like time wasn’t on my side either. Our first round of IVF was pretty uneventful and resulted in no pregnancy. A few months later when it was ‘convenient’ to try another round of IVF (it had to fit around my busy work schedule right?!) I overstimulated from the hormones I was injecting. Overstimulating is very serious. Let me explain it simply… you can die.

Anon's Story

In 2015, I found a way to leave my abusive partner. I had spent 5 years loving a man who belittled me, called me names, treated me poorly, and left me bruised and broken. For 5 years he slowly but surely tore me apart, and by the time I actually left, I was but a shell of who I used to be. I had begun to believe the words he so readily used to describe me - "useless bitch", "worthless", "stupid cow", "fat, ugly mummy". And still I loved him.

Han's Story

I have struggled with depression and anxiety for a long time. My struggle is constant and I don't always recognise it in every situation but its always there looming over me and takes a hold of every decision I make. I have come so far from where I was and I’m proud of how far I’ve come.

Jordi's story

Due to trauma at 15 years old I suffered with anxiety and depression, I developed an eating disorder and I had PTSD. For so long it was so hard to accept treatment because I felt so judged and didn’t quite understand what was going on. I’m 25 years of age and after 10 years battling with mental illness I’ve hit a breakthrough and it’s something I want to share.

Kristina's story

This year I have decided enough is enough and to turn my world around and face my fears. This in part is because I have entered into a very healthy, supportive relationship, which has opened my eyes to how toxic a lot of the relationships are in my life. I am on the cusp of facing my toxic parents by telling them how I actually feel.
