"I remember when I didn’t want to look at anyone. I remember when I didn’t want anyone to look at me.
"I remember when I was scared of people, scared of men. I remember when I was scared of the world.

"Today on Mental Health Day my first meeting of the day is with my therapist. I still go, it still helps and I’m able to talk."
