“My mental health was affected by the pressure I put on myself to juggle work, life, and family.”

Throughout my life, I’ve known people who were affected by mental health challenges. I’d never suffered personally until I had my two children within 15 months during lockdown. I put a lot of pressure on myself to juggle work, life, and family, and this affected my mental health. Fortunately, I was able to access the resources and support I needed. I feel passionately that everyone should be able to get the help they need, and that no one should feel ashamed or stigmatised for struggling.
