I struggled for almost 8 years with mental illness, because I didn’t think that there was anyone who could help me. Among other things, I didn’t think as though I deserved the help because there were people who were worse off than me. When I first walked into a headspace center I was so worried I’d be turned away because other people needed the service more. But that’s not what happened.
The team at headspace helped me quit drinking, they helped me build the confidence I needed to start working and studying, and to find passion for my life. In just a year I could really see the future I wanted to have and was ready to fight for it. My life has changed so much since then, and I’m so glad I made the choice to ask for help.
Thanks for reading,
