It’s Mental Health Week here in Australia (and possibly elsewhere as well).
Over the next two days, I will be sharing my story of my experiences with mental illness, in an attempt to encourage you all to become open to discussing your experiences and helping others who may be experiencing it now. For too many years I kept my experiences to myself and it almost killed me.
If you are in Adelaide and would like to chat with me about it, discuss your own experiences or ask questions about mental illness, feel free to come into the Experience Cafe on Hutt Street tomorrow morning between 9:30am and 12:30pm. I will be wearing a mental health week themed shirt along with the other manager.
If you aren’t feeling brave enough to come chat in person or you aren’t in Adelaide, feel free to send me an email with any questions you might have and I will reply as soon as I can. Whether you come to the cafe or email me, I can also give you contact details for organisations such as beyond blue, whose sole purpose is to help people suffering from depression and other mental illnesses, as well as being able to answer questions that I can’t.
