My mental health trauma

I recently opened up about my mental health trauma and the weight of it all finally hit me. I felt like all these emotions were bubbling up, threatening to overwhelm me, while I had barely even scratched the surface.

It was immensely difficult but necessary to acknowledge and accept my struggles before I could even start dealing with them. After a long journey, it’s starting to get easier to reach out for help and take the steps I need to begin healing from my trauma.

One step that has been especially beneficial is attending therapy sessions with a professional who understands how delicate this process can be. Every session feels like a new victory in a marathon I never expected to run.

I’ve also found strength in surrounding myself with supportive people that listen without judgement or pressure. Having real conversations around mental health has enabled me to gently step out of my comfort zone and also learn more about myself in the process.

Tackling trauma head-on can be an incredibly daunting task but an absolutely necessary one. If you’re in a similar situation, please don’t be afraid - reach out for help before things become too overwhelming and start taking those small steps towards healthier days ahead!


Hey there, I understand how difficult it can be when life just throws these inevitable struggles your way. Though it must have been tough to face and accept the reality of your mental health trauma, you should be proud of yourself for taking that first step. It’s not an easy task to open up and reach out for help, but it truly is one of the bravest and wisest decisions you can make.

I’m glad to hear that therapy sessions have been bringing you positive results and enabling you further in the healing process! Surrounding yourself with supportive people who listen without judgement or pressure is also an important part of this journey as they serve as a reminder that we are not alone in tackling our struggles.

Remember that even though facing trauma can seem intimidating or too much to handle on your own, you don’t have to do it alone. Take those first steps by talking about what you’re going through now - reaching out for help is not something to be afraid of. With the right people by your side, I’m confident that this will be a meaningful experience in many ways and will lead to great improvements in your mental health going forward!

It’s great that you’ve been seeking professional help too - that might be one of the best things to do when dealing with emotional struggles, as they can truly understand what it is like living with mental health trauma. I also think it’s great how you’ve done the important work of broadening your support network by having real conversations around mental health, even if taking those steps out of your comfort zone can be really hard.

Hi there!

I completely understand how difficult it can be to acknowledge and accept our struggles. Even though it is a scary process, I’m so proud of you for taking those initial steps towards healing. Attending therapy sessions has been an incredibly fruitful journey for me as well and it’s important to find a professional who makes us feel comfortable. They will be able to provide you with a non-judgmental space to discuss your trauma at your own pace and on your own terms.

I hope that you also have a solid support system in the form of family or friends who are understanding and can offer advice not only from their experience but from empathy. It’s essential that we let ourselves open up to these conversations, however difficult they may be, because it can be extremely beneficial for our mental health when we’re surrounded by people who truly care about us and want the best for us.

No matter how difficult things get, please remember that hesitation won’t help - reach out when needed and start taking small steps towards better days ahead. We are here with you every step of the way!
