Mental Illness is Physical Illness
Mental illness isn’t just in your head, it affects your physical body too. Both mental and physical illnesses must be addressed with care.
Dealing with Depression and Anxiety
Dealing with depression and anxiety can feel like a constant rollercoaster. Here are some small ways to help you in your recovery journey.
Worth More Than Gold
I felt worthless, lost, stumbling around in made-up fantasies. But right on the edge, I found my golden treasure.
Thank You Letter to Myself
Self-love and feeling comfortable in my own skin seems hard to achieve. I wrote a letter to myself to remind myself that I am whole and complete, deserving of love, and capable of change.
Leap into Recovery
Recovery means making small leaps in a new direction. Some days are dark, but the only way to move towards recovery, is to step into the sun.
Xiu Wen’s Experience
I started showing signs of depression back when I was about 16.
Back then, when resources on mental health were scarce, it didn’t really cross my mind that I was suffering from depression. I just felt ill and different from others.
