1.) Take the pledge by copying and pasting the following into a post featuring “Blog for Mental Health 2013″.
I pledge my commitment to the Blog For Mental Health 2013 Project. I will blog about mental health topics not only for myself, but for others. By displaying this badge, I show my pride, dedication, and acceptance for mental health. I use this to promote mental health education in the struggle to erase stigma.
2.) Link back to the person who pledged you.
I have used the nomination from Lucy (it won’t let me link)
3.) Write a short biography of your mental health, and what this means to you.
I have suffered from depression since 2006/7 although there were periods where things were bad beforehand. I also have anxiety which started in 2006 just before leaving school!!
I am in recovery from depression but still have bad days and/or spots. I also am in recovery from self harm which is now nearly 3 years long. I also haven’t taken an overdose or attempted suicide for 4 years in August!!
It’s been tough and bumpy but it’s helped me to see how strong I am and have gained even more empathy as a person.
4.) Pledge five others, and be sure to let them know!
I haven’t got anyone who hasn’t already made their pledge :O
