Working in mental health, I am continually frustrated by the stigma & lack of understanding surrounding the illness. I want to be apart of the movement for mental & physical health to be seen as equal.  We all have mental health - good and bad!

Talking is critical to the recovery process and still so many feel unable to talk due to judgements surrounding the illness. There is a real need for change and this is why I am so passionate about the 500/100 challenge. I will be documenting my journey though twitter and my blog https://findinghappyuk.wordpress.com/

The #amileinmyshoes campaign that supports this challenge is a great way to spread the word that mental health effects everybody. My challenge commences on 1st July
