Hello and welcome

I created this blog because I was concerned about the stigma around mental illness.

I have personally lived with depression and anxiety, and have been ostracized by people who didn’t understand my situation.

Through this blog I aim to raise awareness and challenge the stigma associated with anxiety and depression by reporting truthfully on important issues.

This is a safe haven, free of prejudice.

 

The name Out of the Dark is symbolic of stepping out of the darkness and guilt associated with mental illness.

By allowing people to feel like part of an aware community, I hope that more people living with mental illness will share their stories and realise that they are not alone.
