Take 5 To Blog for Time To Change

001. My name is Rachel and I suffer from depression and anxiety.

002. My mental illness has affected my studies, my work, my relationships, and my self-concept.

003. My greatest source of support is my friends - those who 'get it' and those who don't - and my family.

004. My hope for the future is that I will continue to learn how to manage and cope with my illness, and that there will be a reduction in the stigma surrounding mental health issues. I hope I can continue to talk openly about my own experiences and offer my support to others.

005. I'm taking 5 on Time to Talk day because talking helps understanding, and if more people understand mental health, fewer people will suffer in silence.

Get involved with the Time to Talk Day 2015 #Take5ToBlog initiative and take five to have a conversation about mental health or post your own five sentence blog.

Sign the Time To Change pledge wall and learn more about how talking can tackle discrimination against mental health.
