Whilst at uni, in the middle of my excruciatingly long 4 hour break, I decided to have a walk around campus. My campus is absolutely beautiful. The pure beauty, the joy of taking photos and the glorious sunshine, put me in an amazing mood. So much so, that I did something that I am incredibly proud of.
I have been struggling with anxiety and depression, for a long while now and I have been putting off seeking help since the beginning. My mental health is, unfortunately, starting to become a huge issue – especially when it comes to my studies.
I’ve had enough.
Today I finally took the huge step and sent a long, blabbering application form to my university’s mental health team. I know it doesn’t seem like much, but for me this is incredible.
They replied almost instantly, explaining how they will soon be in touch to arrange a meeting. I am more than terrified and I’m extremely worried about them not being able to help me. But I did it and I’m proud. I’m one tiny step closer to becoming me again.
