For years I wouldn't believe I had depression. I refused to believe I needed help. Antidepressants? counselling? I just needed to get a grip.I didn't understand or wanted to understand mental health problems. It sure wasn't happening to me. The only way I can describe what happened to me and I realised something wasn't right is I hit a brick wall. I couldn't do my job. My partner made a doctors appointment and came with me. I still at that point thought it was a blip and it would pass and I didn't need to see a doctor. My partner explained and described everything about me to the doctor and I just sobbed. It was almost as though he was describing someone else. This couldn't be me. I now ask myself how can I expect other people/employers to understand Mental Health problems when I myself didn't initially understand?? I went on an Adult MHFA 2 day course and it completely drained me but I came away with so much more knowledge. This course is what's needed especially for employers.
