Minds Anonymous provides a safe space to share your mental health stories completely anonymously.
By increasing the understanding of mental health conditions we hope to abolish stigma.
A powerful story can change a life.
Let us share yours.
- SUPPORT: Making a case for Self-CompassionSelf-compassion is not the same as ‘being kind to yourself’ or ‘self-care’, although this can certainly be part of it. Nor is it about ‘letting yourself off the hook’ or saying ‘everything I do is fantastic’. For me, self-compassion is about approaching yourself with a sense of deep understanding, patience, and a desire to ease suffering.
- The Depression, The Distress, The DeviNov 2013: night shelter My life is a joke, and this needs to change. Too much debt, not enough success. I’ve achieved some things, but these things seem insignificant compared to my current situation: out of hospital after a breakdown for the 5th time, I’m 27 living in a homeless night shelter with a part time job at minimum wage. I need to learn new skills, pay off debts, exercise, stay fit, and quit smoking. Or at least cut down. My current financial situation lends itself to quitting [smoking] entirely.

We are looking for writers, broadcasters, illustrators, PR professionals and artists to help build the brand of Minds Anonymous and get our message of support and acceptance out there.
Minds Anonymous is an initiative set up to end the stigma that surrounds mental health, offer support to those that suffer and increase understanding of common and uncommon mental health conditions.
By sharing stories of real life mental health experiences, we aim to prove that managing mental health is simply part of being human. We may face individual challenges, but by learning about each other, we are in a stronger place to support one another.
