Many of you won’t know this but like most people, I have struggled with mental health. I have suffered with anxiety since I was at secondary school and it’s only been recently that I’ve started to accept it and ask for help. Asking for help was one of the scariest things that I’ve ever done but it was definitely a step in the right direction and it’s something that I’m so glad I did.
My friends and family supported me the whole time and it’s so important to not be afraid to accept that you’re not perfect and ask for help. No one is perfect and mental health is not something to be afraid of!
In honour of sharing awarness for people who suffer with mental healthy I will be joining in in NHS’ scroll free September campaign. I will be taking a whole month off social media and I’m quite excited to see the difference that It could make to my mental healthy.

I will be scuba diving and training to become a dive master in September – October anyway so this is the perfect time to take a social media detox and focus on my diving course.
I will see you guys in October!
