selfie + post-it + donation + share = #itaffectsme
#itaffectsme is simply the statement that we have all known or will know mental illness in our lives,
whether through ourselves, families, friends or a stranger in the street. Mental illness has no prejudices about who it affects,
so we should have no prejudices about it.
A bit about me: Some of you may know me and some of you won't but we all have something in common,
we all have experience of mental illness in some way, shape or form. I have lived with it throughout my life in many different ways,
seen it in myself, in family and in friends. We need to get people talking, to get them to understand and to end the stigma that surrounds mental health.
That is why #itaffectsme was born, to do just that and hopefully it will continue to grow and grow and grow. It is in your hands social media, take it and let it fly!
