I have created this blog to give an insight into the life of a young woman living with mental health problems who is grieving a life that was taken by them.

My experiences of mental health problems past and present include: Anxiety, Depression and general eating problems/disordered eating.

Tragically, I am bereaved by suicide and in my personal time I am an activist raising awareness of: bereavement, grief, mental health, mental illness, stigma and suicide. 

Part of this includes a joint Vlogging YouTube Channel about these subjects as an awareness project which you can find under the hashtag of #SuicideTabooandLifeWithoutYou or #STALWY

You can view our YouTube channel here – Vlogs

We also have a Facebook Page where we include various articles and some from other organisations that work towards improving and changing attitudes towards mental illness and suicide which you can find here: Facebook page 

As my mental health problems began aged 13, I’m particularly interested in and  dedicate time to work that supports young people with mental health challenges.
