“My experience with anxiety is like having a close friend, but this friend is hurt and afraid of everything…” – Amanda Southworth, inspiring mental health advocate.
This 15-year-old girl tells the story of her anxiety, depression, PTSD and 7 attempts to commit suicide. To say she is an inspiration for sharing her message would be a blind understatement.
We are sharing this video so that you can see you are not alone. Mental illness and generalised mental health issues are becoming more and more common, but there is support out there when you’re ready to access it. Amanda’s advice? Find your purpose. Find something that gets you up in the morning. https://youtu.be/pLOagmZTWmM
