#poetry #depression #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #gethelp #bellletstalkday “Depression | Definition of Depression in English by Lexico Dictionaries.” Lexico Dictionaries | English, 2019, www.lexico.com/en/definition/depression. Accessed 18 June 2019. Mental health is being redefined for the 21st century. The poem, “So I Run,” paints the colours of depressive emotions. Suffering from depression, the narrator is plagued with a turbulent mind, clouded with emotional pain and subconscious negativity. “Suffocated by ineffable sadness,” the narrator is struggling to escape his/her inner mental prison. Additionally, amidst the stigma of psychiatric medication, the narrator implies that his/her “chemical romance” with prescription drugs reduces symptoms. Void of them, he/she “feels everything...feels nothing.” In sum, support is vital for those battling mental illness, such as the narrator. Thus, mental health awareness and eradication of mental health stigma is necessary.

These are the types of pictures my friends and family like to comment on. These are the ones that get the most likes and comments. But the minute I posted about being bipolar and invited people to join my support group on Facebook - crickets. It’s no wonder a close friend of mine said to me just yesterday that she “doesn’t like to post about her issues on social media” when talking about her anxiety. Because that’s how people see them, as “issues”. Airing out dirty laundry. Heck, I don’t like to publicly share my issues either. Whenever my husband and I argue, I don’t blast it on social media - but this isn’t the same thing. But this negative, judgemental language we use around our disorder is part of the problem. The things we experience because of our symptoms are not “issues”. Experiencing paralyzingly anxiety because we can’t control the flood of thoughts rushing through our minds, or forgetting to eat or not needing sleep because we’re going through a depressive or manic episode are not “issues”. These are symptoms of our disorder and they’re no less “weird” or “awkward” to talk about than someone who says they’re experiencing extreme fatigue because they’re diabetic. Once we start using more positive language around what we’re experiencing we can slowly end the stigma and shame around mental health. So next time, instead of telling yourself that you’re not ready to talk about your “issues” or disorder, try saying “I’m not ready to share my journey with others yet”. When you use more positive language, without judgement, you’ll be kinder to yourself and the shame will slowly disappear, which will make it easier for you to accept your condition and share it with others. . . . . . . . #bipolardisorderawareness #bipolarawareness #bipolardepression #bipolar #bipolarstrong #depressionkills #depression #depressionhelp #depressionawareness #depressionsupport #bipolarsupport #anxiety #anxietydisorderawareness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthadvocacy #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalwealth #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday #bellletstalk💙 #unbroken #torontomom #momlife #sunnyontheinside #camh #loveyourself #positivelanguage #positivethoughts #posi

In honour of the Bell Let’s Talk campaign I wanted to share this. This picture was taken during a dark time in my life. Behind my smile you can see the exhaustion and pain. I was sad and I was just not feeling like myself. This was last February, my daughter was 6 months old and I had just started to see a counsellor to talk about postpartum depression. I cried the whole session. I felt weak and embarrassed that I couldn’t be the strong Mom I wanted to be. I needed help and I was lucky to get it. #letstalk #bellletstalk #mentalhealth #momhealth #bellletstalkday

We're rounding out the month of May, which has been mental health month. . Depression, mental stress and anxiety can take a serious toll on our lives and our bodies. For me, one of the first places I feel it is in my stomach. It's usually loud and clear. But I also try to tune into the smaller signs that are harder to hear. I've learned not to let any of this go unnoticed. But I've also made a decision to feel 100% OK with not always feeling 100%. When there are day-to-day fluctuations, I remind myself it's temporary and that it will feel better eventually. Detaching from the experience helps me to take action. . I've made a little toolkit of actions that help me get outside of tunnel vision - meditation, nature walks (especially barefoot), art making and heart-to-hearts with friends, etc. What are some of your go-to life-affirming actions? . It's important to take care of our physical, as well as our mental health. If something doesn't feel aligned, and especially if you feel your wellbeing is comprised, please speak up, reach out, find resources and ask for help. You are not alone. 🙏 .

Do I look happy? Sure. Am I smiling? Yes. Does this mean I’m happy and having a good day? No. Mental health is so scary sometimes because it’s invisible. You somehow get treated so badly while also being invisible. Let’s all be nice to each other. Why do we only ever say nice things on #bellletstalkday? Every day should be that day. Every day should be a kind and compassionate day #endthestigma #mentalhealth #mentalhealthadvocate

My first mission was that I wanted to talk about what it was like to have anxiety disorder. I was diagnosed with several anxiety disorders in 2006 - when the stigma was still very real. We’ve come a long time in this decade plus. I had never actually heard about anxiety disorder was. I knew what being nervous meant and that was the extent of my knowledge. I also knew what mental illness meant and I didn’t want to be associated with that. For years, I suffered in silence, reading books, educating myself quietly about the disease I carried. It wasn’t until 2012 when my blog went viral on #BellLetsTalkDay that I realized that I had a responsibility to be the voice I wanted to hear. During my teens - I felt so misunderstood, lonely and honestly didn’t even really have time to truly enjoy my life because I had bigger fish to fry at home in the chaos that was my family’s life. We often sit and complain that things are the way they are - but how many of us, go out there and innovate something different? Not many realistically— but there are a select few who are sitting reading this with a burning ache, a fire in their belly ready to create a revolution. I know it - you are the change agent, the storyteller, the pioneer. You are outraged at the way we systemically do things right now in society and you care about making the impact your soul intended to do when you incarnated. You are ready to discover what your medicine is and most importantly share it so that your slice of the work gets done. You care about educating people, you care about creating things that help people, you care about the worlds safety and survival. You just need help coming up it with the plan, making the projections, putting yourself out there in a way that feels true and safe to you. And then you need help to create more and more capacity in your nervous system to handle all the upleveling that comes with committing to your greatest potential - all the being seen, heard, valued, loved is possible. And it doesn’t have to burn you out or freeze you up to consider doing what it’s your heart. I have some spots opening up for 1-1 coaching these next few months. Are you the woman for it?

@natureandnursing • In honour of #BellLetsTalk Day let’s talk about nurse burnout.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What is nurse burnout?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Nurse burnout is a physical, mental, and emotional state caused by chronic overwork and a sustained lack of job fulfillment and support. Common burnout symptoms may include physical or emotional exhaustion, job-related cynicism, and a low sense of personal accomplishment. Rather than improving on its own, untreated burnout may lead to clinical depression, as unaddressed symptoms compound over time.” Nurses spend so much time taking care of others, but make sure that you take some time to take care of yourself. SELF CARE is SO important and will help you to fend off nurse burnout.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the last year, I have been experiencing the effects of nurse burnout, and my depression decided to make a reappearance. This led me to make a change in my career and become a travel nurse. I may only be a week into this lifestyle change, but I can honestly say my burnout is completely gone. Do what is best for you and care for you!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bellletstalk #nurseburnout #travelrn #gypsynurse #mentalhealthawareness #bellletstalkday #endthestigma #registerednurse⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ repost from @natureandnursing, Travel ER/ICU RN in Northern British Columbia 📍🌄⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you, Claudia, for letting us repost this great post about the importance of self-care and inspiring other nurses to consider the travel nurse life. ✈️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Be sure to follow @skillgigshealthcare to join the community!💫

OWN YOUR STIGMA: We all have good and bad days. No one can be perfectly happy all of the time, that is not human. One day you feel on top of the world, the next you can hardly get out of bed. For anyone struggling with their mental health/ a mental illness and/or grief, dealing with this pressure to seem happy can be a challenge. Sometimes when we are feeling down, we put on a mask to hide the darkness. We do this because we believe it is easier to fake it than explain to someone what is wrong or we do not want to bother others with our problems. Just know as long as you DO NOT GIVE UP, it is perfectly okay to not be okay.

May is #mentalhealthawarenessmonth 🌷🌺🥀 • Continue to bring down the walls and stigma that having hardship and a mental illness is a personal failure.

It’s feeling trapped in a hole in which you feel as if you can never climb out. . . #Anxiety is more than worrying. It’s overthinking and self isolating in fear on yourself and being abandoned by everyone around you: To the point where you feel as if your presence (lack or present) would not matter to those you love and want to be near. . . • OCD is more than being tidy.

This month, we are able to celebrate. We celebrate because people are becoming aware. Although the resources for mental illnesses may not be as accessible as we would like them to be and there is still much that can be done, there are major differences and improvements happening.

OWN YOUR STIGMA: We all have good and bad days. No one can be perfectly happy all of the time, that is not human. One day you feel on top of the world, the next you can hardly get out of bed. For anyone struggling with their mental health/ a mental illness and/or grief, dealing with this pressure to seem happy can be a challenge. Sometimes when we are feeling down, we put on a mask to hide the darkness. We do this because we believe it is easier to fake it than explain to someone what is wrong or we do not want to bother others with our problems. Just know as long as you DO NOT GIVE UP, it is perfectly okay to not be okay. #mentalhealth #mentalillness #endthestigma #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalillnessawareness #selfcare #OwnYourStigma #mentalhealthawarness #ambassadorswanted #influencerswanted #brandambassadorwanted #mentalhealthambassador #fashion #ambassadors #fashionambassadors #bekindtoyourmind #allbodiesaregoodbodies #selflove #mentalhealthadvocate #brandambassador #eatingdisorderawarenessweek #bodypositive #bopo #hamont #hamiltonontario #burlont #eatingdisorderawareness #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday #salutetheblue🇺🇸⚫️🔵⚫️🇺🇸

We can’t get enough of our ambassador @amanda_unfiltered 🖤 She is a poet who likes crystals and mental health awareness.🧠 . “ALL BODIES ARE GOOD BODIES” is a phrase that you can read and agree with, but still forget to apply to yourself. . I know my body is a good body. But I forget sometimes. Maybe that happens to you too. It’s completely okay it if does. . It is really hard to love your body all the time. I think it’s about not letting thoughts about your body and the negative feelings stop you from enjoying your life. . Just writing down one thing a day that I like about my body is helpful. So when I forget, I can read the list and remember there are so many good things. . . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #endthestigma #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalillness #selfcare #OwnYourStigma #mentalhealthawarness #ambassadorswanted #influencerswanted #brandambassadorwanted #mentalhealthambassador #fashion #ambassadors #ptsd #fashionambassadors #bekindtoyourmind #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealthadvocate #brandambassador #bopo #hamont #hamiltonontario #anxiety #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday #mentalillnessawareness #depression #dontgiveup

How lucky are we to have @delicia23r as our ambassador!! 🖤 Thank you for making such an impact on young lives. . | be kind to your mind | . I had the most incredible morning talking about mental health and well-being in Ontario's education system and I learned a few things. 1. young people have a lot to say and I could not feel more proud and grateful. Use your voice to start the important conversations. 2. change is happening around us. Real, tangible change in attitudes, actions, policy, and environments are happening. Remember how far we have come. 3. we have come so far but we still have a long way to go. Stigma still exists, there aren't nearly enough resources for young people, and suicide continues to be the second largest cause of death among young people. We gotta keep making progress. 4. Advocacy can be tiring and overwhelming but together, it is possible. The world can seem dark and scary and sometimes even hopeless yet people still show up to talk, to advocate, to protest, to create change. You are never alone in this. If you lose hope when it comes to fighting for what's right, look in the mirror and you will see proof of hope. Look in the streets and hear rally cries of hope. Action is happening and that is reason for hope. Keep advocating, starting conversations, listening, making your voice heard. Rest, take care of yourself and keep fighting the good fight. 💪🏽 . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #endthestigma #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalillness #selfcare #OwnYourStigma #mentalhealthawarness #ambassadorswanted #influencerswanted #brandambassadorwanted #mentalhealthambassador #fashion #ambassadors #ptsd #fashionambassadors #bekindtoyourmind #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealthadvocate #brandambassador #bopo #hamont #hamiltonontario #anxiety #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday #mentalillnessawareness #depression #dontgiveup

I don’t know about everyone else, but I usually don’t realize I need some self-care until my mind and body are at their limit. I manage to talk myself out of it, saying things like “I don’t deserve that” or “I haven’t earned it yet.” I only finally give in when I am about to crash and burn. Self-care is necessary and often takes planning. Dont let your mind, body or soul run on empty. 🖤✨ . You deserve self-care and you will find your body and mind will thank you when you make it a priority. . 📸: @unknxwn.fxrever . . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #endthestigma #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalillness #selfcare #OwnYourStigma #mentalhealthawarness #ambassadorswanted #influencerswanted #brandambassadorwanted #mentalhealthambassador #fashion #ambassadors #ptsd #fashionambassadors #bekindtoyourmind #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealthadvocate #brandambassador #bopo #hamont #hamiltonontario #anxiety #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday #mentalillnessawareness #depression #dontgiveup

No matter what it is you are going through, recovery + healing is different for every person. The process is about progress. Mistakes are necessary. Without mistakes, there is no gain. Progress, not perfection takes a burden off of our backs in recovery and frees us to live at a pace that is comfortable.

When I was younger a little child I was very badly abused . When I finally recognized that it was abuse I went to an adult and told them where it was basically shoved under a rug. I had to continue to live my life in the same space as my abuser for years until I ran away from home . But then still had to face my abuser every family gathering . My anxiety would be so high around this person I never felt safe. But because they were family I had to "forgive" them suck it up and just go with pretending nothing ever happened. Because that was what I was taught to do. I did try confronting this person threw out the years and I would always be tould I was a psychotic person etc. Last year after having my third baby I knew I couldn't go on living my.life like this in fear so I confronted my abuser , he showed up at my doorstep a day later and I never felt so much fear for my life or my children. I told my step father what happened to me before he passed and he questioned why I never spoke up and then understood why I was a crazy teenager and the real reasons I left home . Now a year later a family member still thinks that I will forgive my abuser and basically suck it up for the family . But no I will not the trauma I experienced no one will ever understand or the fact I lived in silence so the "family" could be a family . I didn't realize how much damage it was doing to me and my new little family pretending I'm okay when rely I never was I was far from.okay . Now a year later yes I may have certain "family pissed at me for my choices but I'm fine with that because my mental well being is a hell of alot better , just in one year the amount of healing I have done I'm so proud of my self for it . I stopped being everyone's "glue " because I need to heal me for my kids and my mental well being and now I'm blamed for other people's depression and I know it's not my fault I didn't ask to be abused . I know who my family is I know who truly cares about me and how I feel . I'm not staying silent anymore because I never should of been forced to stay silent . I lived in shame and guilt and anger for years but today I have no shame my husband loves me and accepts me

I didn't realize how much damage it was doing to me and my new little family pretending I'm okay when rely I never was I was far from.okay . Now a year later yes I may have certain "family pissed at me for my choices but I'm fine with that because my mental well being is a hell of alot better , just in one year the amount of healing I have done I'm so proud of my self for it . I stopped being everyone's "glue " because I need to heal me for my kids and my mental well being and now I'm blamed for other people's depression and I know it's not my fault I didn't ask to be abused . I know who my family is I know who truly cares about me and how I feel . I'm not staying silent anymore because I never should of been forced to stay silent . I lived in shame and guilt and anger for years but today I have no shame my husband loves me and accepts me)?>

Welp, the website is officially completed! I worked incredibly hard on it and had a few very frustrating moments. I would love some feedback regarding it from you guys! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get a comment section on my website, So I linked this Instagram page and a newly created Facebook page where we can go and have a conversation. Anyways! This quote is pretty self explanatory, if you’re hurting, tell someone. I care, we care. #bellletstalk #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #ivegotyourback911 #bellletstalkday

So grateful to have people on our side like @doree_likethefish 🖤 . 🌿 #confessionsofmotherhood 🌿 I ask myself this a lot. What could go wrong. Of course, this response sums it up perfectly, that my anxiety replies with basically everything. Anxiety looks different for everyone. And this is mine. This is me, unveiled, upfront and personal. It’s a burning in my stomach, consuming every thought. It’s constantly feeling sick. On the verge of tears. Of feeling every single emotion over and over again. . . But I know I’m not my mental illness and it doesn’t define me. It hasn’t made me who I am. It hasn’t made me strong, because it’s God and I who’ve done that. It hasn’t made me laugh till my stomach hurt, it’s my friends and I who’ve done that. It hasn’t made me cry tears of complete joy, it’s my family and I who’ve done that. . . I am a mother, a friend, a wife, a sister, a daughter. And a mental health survivor. . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #endthestigma #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalillness #selfcare #OwnYourStigma #mentalhealthawarness #ambassadorswanted #influencerswanted #brandambassadorwanted #mentalhealthambassador #fashion #ambassadors #ptsd #fashionambassadors #bekindtoyourmind #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealthadvocate #brandambassador #bopo #hamont #hamiltonontario #anxiety #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday #mentalillnessawareness #depression #dontgiveup

Tony Porfilio was at the top of his world (entrepreneur & performing artist) and, after unfortunate circumstances, fell off the proverbial cliff.  In Finding Fatima, the author offers an up-close look at his journey, a journey of trust, greed, deceit, anger, survival, forgiveness, love, faith, and hope. The title is inspired from a character in Paulo Coelho’s book The Alchemist—Santiago’s true love. In the quest to find Fatima, Porfilio finds himself and finds his purpose. His mission is to live and love fully and deeply, and in turn to enrich, encourage, and empower through compassion, respect, and integrity. Balboa Press (a Division of Hay House) releases Finding Fatima. https://www.balboapress.com/en/bookstore/bookdetails/790420-finding-fatima Soon to be available on Amazon, Goodreads and other channels including a bookstore near you.  Stay tuned! #abundance #selfhelp #selfhelpbooks #selfdiscovery #love #loveyourself #forgiveness #manifest #manifestation #blessings #universe #transformation #healing #bellletstalkday #goodreads #amazonbooks #quantumleapyourlife #powerofsucess

Why are we called OWN YOUR STIGMA? 🧠 . Owning your stigma is about taking the power back and embracing the struggle + illness. Not letting anyone else have control over what we are going through or how we are feeling. . Most times when we realize or are diagnosed with a mental illness, we feel guilty or ashamed. We are afraid to let other know we need help and keep it bottled up as secret. Being honest with ourselves and accepting our mental health may not be 100% is the first step. We may start to notice others who are going through something similar and feel less alone in our fight. . Owning the stigma is a big part of recovery and getting healthy. We appreciate everyone who has shared their story or struggles in letting others know they aren’t alone. . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #endthestigma #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalillness #selfcare #OwnYourStigma #mentalhealthawarness #ambassadorswanted #influencerswanted #brandambassadorwanted #mentalhealthambassador #fashion #ambassadors #ptsd #fashionambassadors #bekindtoyourmind #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealthadvocate #brandambassador #bopo #hamont #hamiltonontario #anxiety #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday #mentalillnessawareness #depression #dontgiveup

Our mental health advocate @littlemisscluhriss 🖤 🙋🏽‍♀️ I particularly chose @molcajetedominguero @laplazala for this picture because mental illness within the latino culture is still very much a stigma. It's what fosters the machismo way of thinking and ultimately leaves many feeling lost. Only 20 percent of Latinos with symptoms of a psychological disorder talk to a doctor about their concerns, and only 10 percent contact a mental health specialist, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. 🙍🏽‍♀️ However, I'm happy to be the one to stand my ground and own my stigma, not just for me but for anyone who feels they can't just yet. . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #endthestigma #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalillness #selfcare #OwnYourStigma #mentalhealthawarness #ambassadorswanted #influencerswanted #brandambassadorwanted #mentalhealthambassador #fashion #ambassadors #ptsd #fashionambassadors #bekindtoyourmind #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealthadvocate #brandambassador #bopo #hamont #hamiltonontario #anxiety #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday #mentalillnessawareness #depression #dontgiveup

@parastoobadie

#MentalHealthMonday . . . I wrote this blog on #bellletstalkday on Jan 30 but didn't really share it for various reasons: 😰Is this too real? 😰Do I care to share? 😰Would anyone else care? 😰Omg I'm petrified! . . . But then I made some decisions: ✌Authenticity is one of my top values. ✌I care to use my social to be reflective of my actual coaching where I support my clients as best as I can ✌I will not allow other people to dictate what I do or don't do. Opinions are a dime a dozen and there will always be naysayers and haters.

#MentalHealthMonday . . . I wrote this blog on #bellletstalkday on Jan 30 but didn't really share it for various reasons: 😰Is this too real? 😰Do I care to share? 😰Would anyone else care? 😰Omg I'm petrified! . . . But then I made some decisions: ✌Authenticity is one of my top values. ✌I care to use my social to be reflective of my actual coaching where I support my clients as best as I can ✌I will not allow other people to dictate what I do or don't do. Opinions are a dime a dozen and there will always be naysayers and haters. But if I contribute in whatever positive way to even one person...then that's all that matters. ✌I'm always going to be petrified and not taking action will never get me to where I plan on going. . . .

Our ambassador @sarah.lb 🖤 . I graduated from UofT with an HBSc and I’m currently doing a post graduate program in Addictions and Mental Health. I was diagnosed with dysthymia nearly 10 years ago. I’ve learned a lot about myself, including what meds work, what kind of therapy works for me and what my triggers are. Even still, the struggle is real. It’s so important to be kind and care for one another because even though we may look like we have it together on the outside we can be crumbling on the inside. I want to end the stigma because with certain social determinants of health, mental illness is inevitable. And yes there can be a genetic component too, it’s not your fault. Researching protective factors and treatment methods are crucial for a happier future. . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #endthestigma #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalillness #selfcare #OwnYourStigma #mentalhealthawarness #ambassadorswanted #influencerswanted #brandambassadorwanted #mentalhealthambassador #fashion #ambassadors #ptsd #fashionambassadors #bekindtoyourmind #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealthadvocate #brandambassador #bopo #hamont #hamiltonontario #anxiety #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday #mentalillnessawareness #depression #1in5 #mentalillnessawareness

Our ambassador @simpleetor in our “it’s okay to not be okay” t-shirt. 🖤 This shirt is my reminder that my rough days are okay. My sad days are okay. My anxious days are okay. Every day will be okay! . How often do you go through the day masking your emotions out of fear of seeming like you “don’t have it all together”? I know I am guilty of this. I spent so much of my life hiding what I was going through. So much so, I got to a point where I thought suicide was my only option. I never spoke up about what I was feeling or how I was feeling because I was ashamed. I didn’t want to wear the “crazy” label or the “depressed” label. I was so fearful of the stigma that I chose to wear a mask instead. I was literally self destructing and didn’t realize it. Learning to be okay with not being okay all the time is everything! Too many times we are told to be strong or get over it but I’m here to tell you it is okay to have your moments. We will not be okay 100% of the time and we shouldn’t have to be! Be true and honest with yourself. Embrace those moments. Most importantly, learn from them. . . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #endthestigma #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalillness #selfcare #OwnYourStigma #mentalhealthawarness #ambassadorswanted #influencerswanted #brandambassadorwanted #mentalhealthambassador #fashion #ambassadors #ptsd #fashionambassadors #bekindtoyourmind #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealthadvocate #brandambassador #bopo #hamont #hamiltonontario #anxiety #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday #mentalillnessawareness #depression #1in5 #mentalillnessawareness

In a time where we can and do compare ourselves to others on a daily basis, please be gentle with yourself. You are human and you are not meant to be perfect. . Life is hard. Yet, many of us make it worse by being hard on ourselves. We waste precious time beating ourselves up, drowning in guilt, or chastising ourselves for mistakes we feel we’ve made. . Being gentle with yourself just means allowing for space and time to learn + grow. Put aside judgmental thoughts and show yourself love. Care for yourself with delicate hands.

Sending out love to one of our favourite ambassadors @briscoeshea 💪🏼🖤 . It is already difficult for most people to talk about mental health with their loved ones, but it gets worse when you are raised in a family that does not quite understand the concept. . I believe our parents generation considered having depression or even addiction as a weakness, especially as a man. You were not aloud to show vulnerability or emotion as a man. So that concept was passed down and we were told to “suck it up” or “just stop feeling that way.” That can be a very frustrating thing to hear when you are sick. . If your family is not supporting you in your mental health, you can still find support in friends, support groups and councillors, to name a few. Don’t give up. There have been times I have felt hopeless and that my family had given up on me, but the important part is that I never gave up on myself. Hopefully we can all raise the next generation to feel as though they are not alone and that mental health is a priority. . . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #endthestigma #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalillness #selfcare #OwnYourStigma #mentalhealthawarness #ambassadorswanted #influencerswanted #brandambassadorwanted #mentalhealthambassador #fashion #ambassadors #ptsd #fashionambassadors #bekindtoyourmind #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealthadvocate #brandambassador #bopo #hamont #hamiltonontario #anxiety #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday #mentalillnessawareness #depression #1in5 #mentalillnessawareness

Our lovely ambassador @courtneynace 🖤 . Ah kindness, what a simple way to tell another struggling soul that there is love to be found in this world. Sometimes that struggling soul is you and that is okay. Being kind to yourself and your mind is one of the most important things you can do! When your phone is dead you can’t keep using it, you have to let it charge and rest. you need to do the same with your mind. Mental health is sometimes stigmatized and we need to end that because self care is critical in this crazy non stop world we live in! ✨ I have struggled with anxiety for a long time and for the most part i just thought i was crazy, that no one felt the same way and finding out that there are amazing people all over who feel the same way and are there to help was the biggest breath of fresh air! One thing that i do for self care is go to therapy, i know people think that you only go to therapy when life is really rough and while that is true, therapy helps with all kinds of things. Feelings and emotions and information, you should never feel bad for feeling anything! Having someone on your side to help you figure out what your mind and body are trying to tell you is something that i love! . . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #endthestigma #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalillness #selfcare #OwnYourStigma #mentalhealthawareness #ambassadorswanted #influencerswanted #brandambassadorwanted #mentalhealthambassador #fashion #ambassadors #ptsd #fashionambassadors #bekindtoyourmind #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealthadvocate #brandambassador #bopo #hamont #hamiltonontario #anxiety #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday #mentalillnessawareness #depression #1in5 #mentalillnessawareness

Another quote I just added to the website! “Our stories may not correlate, and our pain may not be similar, but 10/10 pain, is 10/10 pain.” I absolutely love this. It is SO IMPORTANT for everyone to understand! Just because your 9/10 pain is getting your leg amputated, doesn’t mean someone’s headache isn’t 10/10 pain. This goes hand in hand with mental health as well. Someone may have lost a loved one spontaneously, and someone may be going through a breakup, both claim 10/10 pain. Perception is reality. We have to understand this! Maybe that headache is caused by a brain tumour, Maybe that breakup was with the love of their life, maybe it ended rough. 10/10 pain is still 10/10 pain, so let’s treat it like it is. It goes back to the old adage, “don’t judge a book by its cover.” #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthquotes #mentalillness #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday #ivegotyourback911

Here we grow again. I am proud to announce the newest member of The Stable, former NHL’er Paul Ranger. Paul spent the majority of his professional career with the Tampa Bay Lightning of the National Hockey League. In October of 2009, eight games into the 2009-10 NHL season, Paul Ranger left the Tampa Bay Lightning to handle what the team called a personal matter. But he would never play again for the Lightning and it would be another three years before he would appear in another professional hockey game. The circumstances around Paul’s exit from the Lightning remained largely a mystery until recently. A defenceman who was playing more than 20 minutes a night simply disappeared. After leaving the sport for almost three years due to severe depression. Paul returned to the NHL with the Toronto Maple Leafs on July 24, 2013. Paul now is able to now share the story of how depression forced him to walk away from hockey for those three years and nearly led him to take his own life. Using the power of sport to change lives, it is a privilege to announce the newest member of The Stable, Paul Ranger. @tblightning @mapleleafs @oshawageneralsohl #tampabaylightning #torontomapleleafs #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday #depression #depressionhelp #depressionisreal #keynotespeaker #keynote #motivationalspeaker #inspirationalspeaker #motivate #inspire #motivation #inspiration #motivational #inspirational #military #paralympics #nhl #mlb #cfl #golf #swimming #adidas #inclusion #diversity

This amazing human @ellystro and her entire family helping to raise awareness and getting the conversations started.✨🖤 . Here I am, posting this picture with 5 of the most important people in my life, and most supportive people in my life, wearing a company that I am proud to stand behind. I want to talk; to raise awareness, to decrease negative beliefs towards mental illnesses, and to decrease the discomfort that people have when talking about mental health. I’ve been on many sides of this mental illness world, the patient side, the nurse side, the friend side, and the stranger side helping someone in a crisis. Despite seeing so many sides to mental health, I still don’t always know what the perfect thing to say is all of the time. I don’t always know how to best support my friends or my patients, and I don’t always know how I need support. But what I do know is that it’s important to say something. To let the person know you’re there with them, with no judgment. . What I love about this company is that it helps start the conversation. It’s one step further towards normalizing mental health illnesses, and people’s mental health in general; whether it be in a wonderful place or a horrible place, diagnosable or just a current mood. Whatever it may be, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that this movement continues and we continue to work through the negative stigmas that exist, and realize that we all have mental health, just like we all have physical health, and it’s okay to talk about it. . So when you don’t know what to say, just say something. Or if you don’t want to start the conversation, grab a piece of Own Your Stigma gear, and I promise you the conversation will start. . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #endthestigma #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalillness #selfcare #OwnYourStigma #mentalhealthawarness #ambassadorswanted #influencerswanted #brandambassadorwanted #mentalhealthambassador #fashion #ambassadors #ptsd #fashionambassadors #bekindtoyourmind #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealthadvocate #brandambassador #bopo #hamont #hamiltonontario #anxiety #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday #mentalillnessawareness #depression

We must never doubt ourselves, our worth or the amount we can endure. ✨ There have probably been many situations where you may have felt that there was no way you would come out the other side, and yet you did. Over and over again you continue to surprise yourself in what you are able to handle and grow from. ✨ Surround yourself with people who know your value and your strength so if you happen to forget, they can be there to have your back. Most importantly don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need that extra support. . . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #endthestigma #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalillness #selfcare #OwnYourStigma #mentalhealthawarness #ambassadorswanted #influencerswanted #brandambassadorwanted #mentalhealthambassador #fashion #ambassadors #ptsd #fashionambassadors #bekindtoyourmind #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealthadvocate #brandambassador #bopo #hamont #hamiltonontario #anxiety #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday #mentalillnessawareness #depression

Okay go follow @_thegoldenpromise if you want mental health awareness mixed with the sweetest little golden nugget named Promise, who is training to become a psychiatric service dog. . For so many years, I feared that the people around me would find out about the daily battle that I was fighting with my brain and with my body. I was afraid people would discover I had an eating disorder, crippling anxiety, clinical depression, and suicidal thoughts. This fear was all-consuming and I tried to take my own life rather than “burden” other people by asking for help. ♡ I’ve learned a lot since then. And I’ve grown a lot since then. I still fight a daily battle, but I know I’m not alone. I’m proud to wear clothing by @ownyourstigma that brings attention to and starts conversations about mental health. Struggling with mental illness is not shameful. You are not a burden. Stigma should not be a barrier to your recovery. And that includes the stigma we internalize and impose on ourselves! . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #endthestigma #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalillness #selfcare #OwnYourStigma #mentalhealthawarness #ambassadorswanted #influencerswanted #brandambassadorwanted #mentalhealthambassador #fashion #ambassadors #ptsd #fashionambassadors #bekindtoyourmind #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealthadvocate #brandambassador #bopo #hamont #hamiltonontario #anxiety #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #bellletstalk #bellletstalkday #mentalillnessawareness #depression #bekindtoyourmind

It’s #bellletstalk day. One way I love to let out my emotions is singing loud and proud. Let’s take today to talk to those we love and do the things that make us feel awesome.

The Reality of OCD part 2. Model: Paige Zancanaro Photo by: Ash Stanley The only thing I don’t like about this photo was how it was pixilated but it gives it a unique effect. I was using a green screen with the computer monitor, to get the background and it suits Paige well, it was just when starting out I should’ve known better to try and avoid getting the background overlapping a bit. I still like this photo though, it makes me happy and Paige is always enjoyable to work with!

The Reality of OCD. Model: Paige Zancanaro I did a project on mental illness, because I was sick of all the stigma around it. Mental health is very important, it’s real and we all need to be there for each other. You can do it, keep fighting the fight, because I believe in you! Thank you Paige for helping me out with this project, you were a joy to work with!
