Shaving my head for Mind because too many people suffer in silence.

I have suffered mental health over the past 8 years, struggling with Anxiety and depression. I have had a lot of ups and downs, as well as seeing a lot of my close friends and family battle with their own mental health and well being. For a long time, I thought that there was no escape. I was put on medication, and put in contact with Councillors and therapists, but I was always too anxious to answer the phone, or turn up to appointments which made it even worse. I hit rock bottom. I thought there was no where to turn, and no escape. Over the past few years, close friends and family have helped to get me where I am today. 

For almost 10 years I have been fighting an uphill battle and I finally feel like I am no longer taking 1 step forward and 2 steps back. Having experienced what it is like to feel this way, I would not wish it on my worst enemy, so I am shaving my head, so that hopefully, the money raised can help people like me, with no where else to turn. 

I started growing my dreadlocks back in 2015, but now I feel its time for me to let go, and start over new. I want a fresh start, and a new me, as I am finally learning what its like to live a life without depression and anxiety. 

Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. Depression is the silent killer, donate today, because you never know who you could be helping.
