Mental Health Helplines

Mental Heath Help


This is piece of my story…

I have suffered from mental health issues for most of my life, mainly anxiety and depression. I wasn’t officially diagnosed until I was in my late 20’s.
I began to hurt myself. I would hit myself in the head with my hairbrush over and over again as I looked in the mirror, you couldn’t see the bruises and lumps that way. I had heard of “cutting” but told myself what I was doing was different (it wasn’t).
One day I was doing it and I missed and had a huge bruise on my forehead, I had to lie about how I got it.
I had 2 young children I had to think about, so I got help.
I later found out that my grandmother had been hospitalized several times, for what they called “a nervous breakdown”. What made it worse is that no one in my family talked about it, not even my grandma, she suffered in silence her whole life.
I didn’t want that for myself or my children. I still fight the day to day battle and yes, sometimes I lose, but I know I can win the war.

Here is my ever-growing list of mental health helplines and mental health websites . I am not a doctor but if you need help please call one of these great helplines.
