For all out there who is trying to support a loved one with mental health issues, I urge you to find out as much as possible about this underestimated illness. By doing so, you can offer so much support. This time last year, I couldn't even bring myself to say the word 'mental. Fast forward 12 months, I am now involved and welcomed by a support group that my loved one is attending, we have become so much closer as I have a deeper understanding of everything, it has now become a journey of recovery and although we have periods of darkness, there are also periods of light, which we embrace. Everything is out in the open, which has an enormous amount of benefits. So, please don't be frightened of it, embrace it, learn about it, talk about it and try your best to understand it. Feel free to pm me if you wish.
