So, one of the best resources for depression and anxiety I’ve ever experienced is an Australian website called Beyondblue. Now, since most of you reading this have never lived in Australia, you probably have never heard of Beyondblue, hence the post!
It’s a great site that is friendly and fun (which really there isn’t enough of when talking about mental health).
The best part is that it covers EVERYTHING there is to cover. If you scroll down on their homepage, you’ll find this:
Who cares if this website wasn’t designed for our country, it’s great! Plus it’s fun and funny. I mean, just look at this video:
Now, this is not a paid advertisement I’m writing here (although, fuck that would be amazing if I actually made money from this little blog) But why I’m writing about this is actually because it is so important.
Everything: Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, and Panic. They’re all so scary to go through alone. They’re extremely distressing. That’s why it’s such a relief to go onto a website that is bright colorful, friendly, and funny.
We need that stuff!
We need more people telling us how to prepare ourselves for the bad times, how to live through the bad times, and how to thrive after them. I hate always having people look at depression and stuff as like, “Well, my life is over…too bad.”
But that isn’t the case. I remember when the show Lady Dynamite came out on Netflix there was a review for it that said, this isn’t a show about living with mental illness, it’s a show about thriving with mental illness.
And I love that. Let’s all learn to thrive. It’s hard, sure. But damn, it’s gotta be worth it!
