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.
- Sorry I’m not your Perfect VictimIt was a warm summer evening; I was catching the bus with a friend back to her mums. A couple of guys start chatting to us and happen to be getting off at the same stop. We were 14, they said they were 16, but in hindsight I’m sure they were older. As we get off the bus one of the guys turns to my friend and asked if he can take me around the corner, I thought it was an odd way to ask for a snog but went with it.
- Redundancy – Am I Grieving?Like so many others, I have been made redundant. I loved the job. I like to think I was good at it, but apparently not that good – or so my mind will lead me to believe. In my head I want to blame myself, I wasn’t good enough, I wasn’t worth it, I am REDUNDANT.
- Sadness or Depression?There has always been a lot of mystery and suspicion around the subjects of mental health and mental illness. Am I losing my mind? Am I imagining things? Will I ever stop crying? Frightening concepts creating a sense of isolation partly because, until recently, they were not talked about in everyday life. Happily this is changing and, to some degree, more out in the open.

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.

I think there has never been a better time to do it. Lot’s of people are struggling this year and we’re not out of the woods yet.Minds Anonymous Supporter
I still think its mad that literally everyone I know has mental health issues of some kind and yet there’s still this feeling that we can’t be open about it!Minds Anonymous Supporter
