The Mental Health Tag

As it is Mental Health Awareness Week (#MHAW15) I thought that I should make a tag for such subject and raise some awareness myself in some way. Firstly, you don't have to be a blogger to join in with this tag and making your own picture like my one above, make your own picture or answer the questions and post it anywhere you want to or just keep it to yourself if you're not quite ready yet. Either way let's get everybody involved in some way, shape or form. You don't even have to have such issues yourself, just share the post and help somebody else suffering. Or maybe just tell a friend you care.

Disclaimer: I have made this tag up with a little help from fellow bloggers, if you are going to join in with this tag and you do not wish to answer all 12 questions then it is ok. Also I would love for you to tag me in yours for me to see.

  1. this is one of the best posts i have ever read! I am so proud of you Hollie! You are so inspirational and such a strong and admirable young lady! I will do this tag for sure but just now is not the right time for me! xx

  2. Creativity also calms me down! I remember I was quite upset and I started creating and scheduling a blog post and felt better. It's nice that you have a partner. I don't know how I can even open myself up to someone like that without the fear of rejection. My technique is that I tell someone about my anxiety almost as an ice breaker. If they don't react the way I want to, then they don't stay in my life.
