The Stigma around mental health kept me from asking for help.
“I was young and too ashamed to voice that I needed help. Looking back, the reasons that I didn’t seem silly but at the time extremely daunting. I thought others would think less of me, and see me as a failure. After getting help, I learnt the mental health issues I was going through were a natural part of life. I now attribute my success in life to the decision to seek help.”- Sara, 23tear down the stigma now
