A mental health blog passionate about tackling mental illness stigma and raising awareness while sending happy post to those who need to feel less alone.

 

Mental health awareness a journey to hope

As someone that has had a long, hard battle with mental health issues I understand that sometimes it feels that things will never get better. That you will never have a normal life and join all those other people that you just watch getting on with their lives while wondering how the hell they do it.

As someone that has battled with self harm, anorexia, bipolar, numerous hospital admissions and a fight with the system to get the correct help I understand that this path sometimes seems impossible and you just can't see that it will possibly get any better. It can. You just have to keep going, one foot in front of the other, one day at a time and the day will come that you will be glad that you never gave up.

You can read more about me HERE.

I am extremely passionate about raising awareness of mental health issues and helping people to know that they are not on their own, and that it is ok to speak about mental health and ask for help.

I aim to send as much "Happy Post" as I can to those struggling with mental illness to offer a little hope that things CAN get better, they may not be perfect - because life isn't perfect  - but they CAN get better. "This too shall pass" 

I can't reply to everyone or send to everyone but I do aim to work my way through all nominations for happy post as best I can so please don't think I am ignoring you if I don't send a personal reply straight away.

This is only currently available to those in the UK due to funding.

I aim to raise awareness of mental heath issues, share my story and things I have learned along the way to hopefully make people feel less alone and know that recovery  (to whatever extent  that is to the individual personally) is possible, we just have to keep fighting and not give up, because there is always hope.

I am looking for anyone who would be able to make a  donation towards stamps which will enable me to send more happy post to those struggling with mental illness than I am currently able to send. 

Support is HUGELY appreciated and 100% of donations will go to buying books of stamps. 

You can become a monthly patreon too in return for rewards which will massively help me with the weekly running costs of this project!

Alternatively if you would prefer to send a physical book of stamps that is also hugely appreciated and you can contact me for my address.
