Witnessing so many amazing people telling how they overcame their greatest challenge, one thing keeps coming back. They all mention the importance of speaking to someone. For some that is a close friend, a psychologist or a family member. Talking to someone isnt going to fix all your problems, but its an important start in opening up and not having to carry the burden alone anymore.

I truly believe that a vast majority of our behaviors are coping mechanisms for feelings that we aren’t equipped to deal with. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Excess is alluring isn’t it? If I just get one more promotion I’ll be happy. If I get that new car and settle down with the right person and finally have a kid. When I finally can buy that big house - I’ll be satisfied. More. More. More. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They cycle never ends. And the pain is always there. You can drown it in clothes, and booze, and money. It’ll come back up. Every time. I’m sorry. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you find yourself resorting to excess anything: food, work, shopping, exercise, sex, etc. I want you to ask yourself: - What am I trying to cope with here? - Am I trying to cover something up? - What am I afraid of feeling? - What am I trying to prove and to whom? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s these, often times painful, feelings we must understand and make peace with if we really want to change our behaviors for good.

Rufus’ story #livesbehindstatistics || . In the early nineties, when I started studying psychology, I could only find one contemporary book on psychological approaches to psychosis. The rest of the textbooks in the University of London library were medical ones taking the stance that psychosis and schizophrenia were uncontested biological diseases. . . However, since then, psychologists and many other groups, like the Hearing Voices movement, have become more and more confident about the value in getting closer to psychosis and questioning medical viewpoints. . .

The very experience of having our subjectivity understood – of being mentalized – is a necessary trigger for us to be able to receive and learn from the social knowledge that has the potential to change our perception of ourselves and our social world.  #getpsychoed . . #mentalhealth#mentalhealthawareness#neuroscience#suicideprevention#mentalwellness#mentalhealthrecovery#anxietyrecovery#depressionawareness#selfharmawareness#secureattachment#ptsd#attachmenttheory#breakthesilence#stigmafighter#majordepression#endthestigma#amygdala#stopthestigma#mentalillnessawareness #mentalillnessrecovery #bts #trauma #borderlinepersonalitydisorder

‘I felt inadequate as a parent. It’s my job to protect you but I couldn’t protect you from this’ I finally sat down with my parents to talk about how they felt about my diagnosis. And it was a tough talk. I’m conducting these interviews to learn about other people’s opinions to not only try and push for change but to try and educate myself. The realisation that no professional help was offered to my parents to be honest is pretty shocking. We’re expecting families to support their loved ones yet as a country we are offering no help for them? So how do they cope? How do they look after their own mental health?

LYME DISEASE INFORMATION - I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease in December of 2015. At that point, I’d had it for at least 3 years and it was in the chronic stages. Treatments are awful because they make you feel even more sick. When you kill off the spirochete, it becomes toxic to the body, causing more pain. Your immune system will become confused and attack healthy cells, causing widespread inflammation on top of the damage that the spirochete inflicted while it was still alive. Currently, I’m on a round of antibiotics and steroids. Lyme disease has been kicking my ass into the dirt. Just a month ago I was locked in a hospital for a week after Lyme-induced meningitis It’s a very stigmatized disease. Not all doctors even believe in it. The CDC’s guidelines are picky on what treatments you can receive, and they argue about the existence of chronic Lyme. It’s a severe disease, much more severe than it’s made out to be; believe me, I’ve lived it. The cheap tests often come back as false-negatives, and many people are declined any help at all. If you know a Lymie, hug them tight, and by God; believe them, even if their doctors don’t. Nobody should have to suffer alone. ♥️ -Francis 🐁 • ( She/they • biromantic aroflux asexual ) 🐁 ( Chronic Lyme disease and a genetic form of muscular dystrophy • I am a cane/wheelchair user • Autism, ADHD, PTSD, anxiety, and depression ) - - #lymedisease #lyme #lymie #lymewarrior #lymedontkillmyvibe #takeabiteoutoflyme #disability #chronicillness #chronicpain #stigmafighter #chronicallyill

Part of Rufus’s story #livesbehindstatistics || . I (Rufus) was treated in a psychiatric hospital for psychosis in London in the eighties. I saw the world very differently to people around me. Amongst other things, I believed many people and animals were robots and a gadget had been put in my chest to control me. . My parents were told that talking with me about my strange beliefs and ideas would only make me worse and neuroleptic medication was something I would need on a long-term basis. . I disagreed and came off my drug treatment just over a year after I had been started on it. I was determined to manage my mental health in other ways. . . This has been taken from rufusmay.com.

i don’t talk about mental illness because it’s trendy, i talk about it because it’s important. i share my story to help others out there 💥💥 when i was diagnosed 10 years ago, no one talked about mental illness or even bipolar disorder. i also want to make it clear that i don’t share my journey or judge others for taking medication. if it works for you that is AMAZING. sadly for me, after years of trying medication wasn’t the answer. the way my body metabolizes the medication, after three or four months, they needed to be changed. it wasn’t just the dosage, it was running out of antipsychotics, and mood stabilizers. it was hard trying to stay “stable” enough to live life, to finish school, work or even be there for my family. I share this with you all so you know that you can incorporate a lot of my recipes into your daily eats, my holistic tips and more to help you feel balance within your own bipolar mind. #FollowOurPassionStyle #BipolarWellnessBlogger #BipolarMind #MentalIllnessMatters

#Repost @moby congrats on 10 years today!!!!!!!! ・・・ Today, October 18, 2018, is my ten year sober anniversary. One thing; as an addict and alcoholic I don’t think there’s anything wrong with alcohol and drugs. I just know from experience that I can’t do either. 10 years ago I was drinking around 15 drinks a night, spending $500 or more every week on drugs, sleeping from 8 a.m until 5pm, and waking up depressed every day, sad that I hadn’t died in my sleep(I used to be jealous of people who’d died of their addiction, as I hated being alive). If you can drink and do drugs in a fun, non-compulsive, non-addictive way, then that’s awesome, more power to you. I couldn’t, so I got sober. If you battle any sort of addiction please know; 1-there are many ways to get sober, find the one that works for you. 2-by doing the work(for me that’s the 12 steps)we don’t just give up the object(s) of our addiction, but we actually can transform ourselves as people. 3-it will get better. 4-take care of yourself, for you deserve nothing but love and kindness and support. Ok, thanks, moby

These scars don’t define me...however they do tell an amazing story that I never thought I would live to tell! 💕

Maintaining your mental and emotional health is the same as maintaining your physical health the illness and disease only comes when we don’t give it (mental health, physical health, emotional health) the proper attention it deserves. #mentalhealthawareness #healthylifestyle #emotionalintelligence #think #mentalhealth #urmentalhealthisurwealth #stigmafighter #nami #namilansing

Me: If I posted this, people would think I’m doing it for attention or sympathy. They are going to make fun of me behind my back that I even took a selfie in this moment, are going to judge me and label me as overdramatic, are going to say my feed is too negative. People literally JUST voted last night that they’d rather see residency updates over self-care topics. People are going to think I’m embarrassing and weak. ••• Also me: I’m vocal enough that people “know” about my physical and mental health issues, but I never let people SEE what it entails (because TBH I don’t owe that to the world). I have heart problems, and my arrhythmias today triggered and combined with my anxiety enough to make me feel completely out of control of my body. I had to isolate myself to pace back and forth and squat on the bathroom floor as I went into a total panic, feeling like I was choking and going to pass out. And then, I used all the self-calming tools I know how to, and I recomposed myself and went back to residency class, where aside from my close friends who know me enough to know something was off, no one had any clue I was struggling so much, because my conditions are invisible unless I choose to share them. ••• I post this not to victimize myself, (because quite honestly I view myself as very strong), but to #breakthestigma surrounding and to desensitize the public to what clinically defined anxiety attacks look like. And to pose a question for you all to ask yourselves honestly: if I told you I needed to step out of the room because of cardiac issues vs. a seemingly unprompted anxiety attack, would that have changed how “acceptable” it was for me to leave in the middle of class, would that have impacted if you felt more sympathetic vs. judgmental, would that have influenced the way and the tone in which you told the story to someone else? There’s a reason people are ashamed to share these types of moments, ask yourself honestly, do you play a role in that?

“To everyone else whos going through a stressful time hang in there. It does get better. Just a year ago I sent my first message to this group I was depressed and unsatisfied with no energy to continue doing anything. I saw no hope. I saw only darkness. I felt that I would never be loved or liked. I was full of hatred and disgust. I was angry and sad. But a few months ago all of that changed. I dont know how, I dont know when. There have been new people in my life who listened to me and I think that could be a factor. Back then, I used to have a few days of happiness between the sad days. But now Im happy deep inside. Im not hopeless or sad. There are good and bad days and moments but when l ask myself how I feel, the answer is that I feel satisfied. My insecurities dont exist anymore. The same things that used to bother me just dont. I see the person in the mirror and I appreciate that I am truly myself and no one else. I feel that my uniqueness will is and will be recognized and appreciated. I want to accomplish things. I dont feel drained anymore.I thank God for where I am today. It took 5 painful years of growth and strength to get here but I did get here. And I hope it stays this way”. . . . . . #mentalhealth#mentalhealthawareness#mentalhealthmatters#suicideprevention#mentalwellness#mentalhealthrecovery#anxietyrecovery#depressionawareness#selfharmawareness#yourstoryisntoveryet#ptsd#suicideawareness#breakthesilence#stigmafighter#majordepression#endthestigma#breakthestigma#stopthestigma#mentalillnessawareness #mentalillnessrecovery

This moved me when I saw it, because when someone is physically hurt, breaks something, or has a visible disease everyone wants to help out, they can see you need assistance, but when your scars are hidden, you feel broken on the inside, in your mind, nobody has to know, you don’t get the help and assistance you need because your disease is invisible to most, and hated on by many, I really hope this changes ASAP because no one needs to suffer in silence no more!

Where does peace come from? It’s easy to think I’m “peaceful” because I don’t hit, and I try not to yell...but what about all the subtle ways that I put myself and others down? What about my harsh judgments when I feel hurt or betrayed? If I don’t own these acts of aggression INSIDE of myself, how am I ever going to expect to change the world OUTSIDE of myself!? 😳 Thank you California for your endless artistic depth ❤️☺️

Each human being is all-powerful in what they can overcome, ingenuously creating defences that have helped us to survive the world with a 100% success rate. However, if you continuously hide behind your protections they become prisons in which we cannot grow or live the lives we truly deserve. The mind is always trying to communicate a message through feelings - our always most honest, loyal and best friends - what we perceive as pleasant feelings highlight that we are currently fulfilling a specific need within ourselves while what we perceive as negative feelings are really our mind’s way of drawing our attention to something that needs our urgent attention, some need we are not fulfilling in ourselves. The point of Psychotherapy is not to undo or fix the past, that is already gone and only affects us in the present by the defences we still carry around with us that helped us to survive, but to give us the security to notice how we feel in the present and to discover what it is that is causing us to feel how we do and then pursue the necessary actions to heal the hidden wounds and progress to greater emotional maturity in those areas. We always know deep down how to move on from our defences because we know deep down why we created them in the first place.

Our model @krisyeo created @_effthestigma_ with her boyfriend Sam after both struggled with mental illness and the stigma that surrounds it. These beautiful people want you to know it is okay to get help and care for your mental health! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 ・・・ Best Mates! We seriously question all the time “how the Hell we have done this “. It’s a pretty crazy to think we were literally across the world when we met via IG ( Yes sam slid into the DMs). We did not expect to have the connection that we had the first time we Skyped. As much as our love and relationship has grown and developed, the most beautiful part is being with something that has faced the same battles as you and truly wants to make a difference with you! We both want to live in a stigma free world and are going to work so hard to be apart of the change! 🙌🏻👍🏼💕💕 #EFFTHESTIGMA #fate #love #mentalillness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentalwellbeing #mentalhealthawareness #recovery #stigmafree #stigmafighter

. Mental illness is just that, mental. It is an ‘invisible’ illness, unlike physical illness. This can contribute to stigma (you don’t LOOK sick, you don’t seem like you have a problem, just get over it—as if you would say that to someone with a broken leg.) as well as being more difficult to treat than something purely physical. The mind is complex, everyone experiences mental illness differently, there can be distinct causes, and distinct successful treatments. We’re still a long way from understanding the brain, and understanding the unique and complex factors that both cause and treat mental illness, Thanks for reading! ❤️ . #instapoets #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalhealth #mentalillnessquotes #mentalhealthquotes #instapoetry #poems #darkpoetry #poetsofinstagram #stigmafighter #poetryofig #poetscommunity #mentalhealthstigma #instapoet #poetsofig #poetrysociety #poetry_addicts #poemsofig #poetryporn #poetryislife #igpoetrycommunity #poetryislife #depressionquotes #anxietyquotes #mentalhealthart #mentalhealthpoetry #mentalillnessart #depressionquote #mentalillnessstigma

I’m kind of an accidental advocate. I didn’t foresee any of this. I had OCD - I still have OCD - and very taboo obsessive thoughts that I kept secret since I was 15. In my mid twenties when I was on the other side of decent therapy, I had this overwhelming urge to tell my story. It struck me as really unjust that this was something I, and so many other people, were living with in secret. Issue 01: The Accidental Advocate, explores Rose Cartwrights journey from anonymity into the public eye, the founding of Made of Millions, her Channel 4 TV show, and whats to come for the mental health movement.

[ THE INITIATION ] The card says more but those words hit my soul big time. ♡ This last week I have had a hard time with lots of physical and mental pain reoccurring. Ive been crying and forgetting things, but painful as it may be, I also know that experiencing this is okay. 🙏 It means that things that I have been holding onto is coming out. So to those that say that walking the spiritual path is easy - hell no!🙂 But the reward is that I get to really know myself and clean out my past trauma. Yes it is painful and yes it is scary, but I wouldt change this journey for anything. 💛Let my heart crack open and the spirit move forward! ☆♡☆ . . . . . . . . . . #spiritualbadass #life #positivevibes #beleiveinyourself #mindbodysoul #health #empath #empower #positivevibes #mentalhealth #stigmafighter #livesimply #lovedeeply #liveyourpassion

Happy to announce that the I Want to Live project will be on show at Exposure Gallery (central LDN) as part @the_photography_movement’s series of shows exploring photography & ‪ #mentalhealth‬. Join me at the launch on Nov 16th! . Exposure Gallery, 22–23 Little Portland St, London, W1W 8BU. Private view runs 16th, 6.30pm — 8.30pm. Show continues until November 28th. . The project is in collaboration with suicide respite centre Maytree, a non-clinical space in north London where those in crisis can stay for 4 nights, 5 days, and talk openly about their suicidal feelings. The project comprises a number of interviews and photographic portraits of Maytree’s volunteer workforce, investigating what brings people to volunteer with those in suicidal crisis, volunteers’ own mental health experiences and the impact of suicide. Alongside these images are a series of photographs taken at the house, highlighting the liminal space where significant change often takes place and the traces that Maytree’s many guests have left behind. .

This is SO important to understand.

Rufus May, clinical psychologist, and mental health advocate challenges current medical perspective on schizophrenia, a condition he has been diagnosed with and psychosis. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ May suggests that this dividing line between a `psychosis and other thoughts can’t be traced, because it’s a continuum. This perspective challenges the belief that we can clearly differentiate ‘’pathological’’ VS ‘’normal’’. ⠀ .⠀ . ⠀ More about Rufus’s fascinating work at rufusmay.com and in the following posts. #livesbehindstatistics .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #stigmafighter #mentalhealthwarrior #recovering #thursdaythoughts #holistichealing #totalwellness #wellnessadvocate #advocacy #mentalhealthmatters #bodyandmind #menshealth #mensmentalhealth #schizophrenia #psychosis #continuum

Oftentimes, the stigma surrounding mental health makes us feel ashamed, and then that shame can turn to isolation. However, we are stronger together than we are alone. Community is vital for fighting this fight; the battle against the stigma.

🤯💊🖤💭 I will not feel ashamed. I will not feel weak. I will not worry. I will feel empowered to share my story. ______ I’m here to share my day-to-day life of managing and caring for my chaotic and beautiful mind that takes a unique shape due to ADD, clinical depression, generalized anxiety disorder, and everything else that makes me - well ME! I no longer want to live in fear that someone will discover who I am behind the happiness they see and the wonderful life (thankful 🙏🏻) that is shown to them at a glimpse. I want to talk openly about who I am and how I succeed at living with these illnesses and also how I fail. I want to find my tribe who understands these struggles and can relate to how I feel. Because, sometimes, it’s hard to remember you’re not alone. And sometimes, you just need to hear something positive and know that it’s okay to not be okay. It’s okay to take medicine. It’s okay to do whatever you need to do to wake up and feel good. I support you. I’m cheering for you. I’m doing my best, too. Let’s have these conversations. It’s time to end the stigma. I’m slowly discovering who I am and what I want out of life. Who are you? What do you want? How do you find the strength each day? Tell me. I hope through telling my story and learning about yours, we become stronger together. - xo ______ #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #depression #anxiety #ADD #ADHD #selflove #selfcare #invisibleillness #endthestigma #recovery #pills #photography #millenials #loveyourself #positivity #stigmafree #stigmafighter #happypills #youarenotalone #selfdiscovery #selfie #mentalhealthmatters #inspiration #motivation #mood #selfimprovement #payattentiongirl
