just a few of our aims that we hope to achieve by building this website and
website and forum we hope to inspire hope and healing for people suffering from
all types of mental illness:
~ We hope to shed the
light upon depression in teens, as this is often passed off as 'being
hormonal' or being a 'moody teenager' when it can often represent something
more serious. Depression should never be left untreated, or passed off
as just a 'phase'.
~ Therefore we hope that, through
supporting each other, expressing our emotions and sharing about our
experiences, that we can not only educate ourselves about mental illness, but
also move forward and find the light in the despair of suffering from
mental illness/mood disorders.
~ We will also put
useful links on this site where people can find help and information
on mental illness, and we'll try to post up-to-date news on new advances in
research on mental health.
We are no doctors, and are
in no way medically trained. We're just normal people who know
what it's like to suffer and who have been in those dark pits of despair,
but there is light,
and we hope more people will find it.
~ If you have any questions
or comments please don't hesitate to contact us in the 'Contact Us'
section, alternatively leave a comment on the guestbook or in the forum.
