We Will Be Well is a platform for discussing and sharing mental health illnesses, experiences, and advice for anyone suffering from a mental illness, or for people who want to learn more.
A big focus of mental health is put on medication, but from my perspective, not enough it put on education. Perhaps if we talked more about it, there would be less of a stigma and we could start to create a nicer and happier world.
I am not a medical expert. I’m neither close nor trying to be a medical expert. I value the services that are provided by our National Health Service but I also hear the horror stories of people being shamed for their condition. I hear of doctors, GPs, and/or therapists not taking their condition seriously. I am not trying to play the role of therapist or counsellor.
I was officially diagnosed with depression and anxiety at the start of the year, but I have suffered alone for much longer, without good reason. Which is why this website exists, to show people they are not alone, to get friends and families talking about mental health, and to promote a safer, more caring society. If this blog helps one sufferer find help, or maybe even saves just one life, then it’s worth all the time and effort.
I am only a survivor. I only know what I have been through, what I did to help myself, what others have told me, and what I’ve read. But studying and talking about mental health is a big priority for me going forward and I hope this blog helps you.
