Our Manifesto – A Call to Action
I want to live in a world where mental health is not stigmatised.
I want to live in a world where people can talk about depression or anxiety without fear of being judged.
I want to live in a world where people struggling with mental health issues can be supported – properly supported – without people keeping them at arm’s length, not knowing what to do or what to say.
I want to live in a world where we can all be one big community, supporting each other in our trials with compassion, understanding and patience. A world where mental health is openly talked about, where people can feel as though they are taken seriously and they don’t have to cover it up or hide who they really are. A world where people are not put down as “weak” for being depression or anxious.
I want to live in a world where we are accepted.
But I can’t do it alone.
Join the Pushing Back the Shadows community and help me as I raise awareness, pushing back those shadows.
Help me as I strive to build this better world, where we can be open about our mental health problems and people can accept us, having the understanding of why we are how we are.
Together, we can end the stigma.
I want to live in that world!
What about you?”
