I'm proud to say @glamouruk has been an avid campaigner and awareness driver on mental health issues for many years now. I know from your emails we've made a difference in a lot of lives. The thing ALL our readers tell me is that the moment they decided to stop struggling alone and just tell someone they needed help was the moment that changed everything for the better. Check out our website for a huge amount of helpful, reassuring information on a range of different issues. I snapped this from a video on our Insta page. If you need help, tell someone. Today. #heyimnotok #mhaw17 #mentalhealthawarenessweek

so it is official, I have shaved my head. I've wanted to do this for a really long time so I decided that it would be a good idea to raise some money whilst doing so. My go fund me page is still up and will be until the 16th (Tuesday) so if you can please donate and all the proceeds will be going to youngminds. thank you everyone who has shown their support πŸ₯€

I call this one 'brown and boujee'

Now on a more serious note, let's talk about mental health as it is mental health week. One in four people around the world have some sort of mental Heath illness that effects their quality of life. Now as someone who was diagnosed with depression by various doctors, I can tell you that living with a mental illness is one of the hardest things someone can do. It changes the way you live, the way you interact with people and loved ones, and it stops you from living life to your full potential.
There are statistics through the roof that show the increasing number of suicides within men just because we over look the fact that men have emotional and mental needs too. We forget that our parents are growing older as we are, and that life is getting to them too. Or how about the young boys and girls in school who are being bullied, self harming and are looking to commit suicide.
Mental health should never be taken lightly, it can either make us or break us.

The societies expectation of us having to be strong all the time is one of the reasons why most people bottle their inner emotions up. I'm all about self love and spirituality, but even I sometimes have to shout out 'oh just fuck it!' because I'm not happy all the time, and even I have issues inside which I am still healing from. Depression, anxiety, self harming and being suicidal has been such a huge part of my life that sometimes my mind takes me back there when I'm at my lowest. How easy would it be to just slip back into my old ways when I'm at my most vulnerable. Our thoughts are strong, they can either make us or break us, so every time my mind wonders, I use the strength inside to look at the bigger picture, look at my life which has many beautiful colours just like in this picture.

We forget to have real life conversations, we should be able to call up a friend and say 'I am not alright right now, I am not coping. I need help. Help me. Talk to me. What's going on internally right now is not something that I can deal with on my own!' ....(continued in comments).... #mhaw17 #mentalhealthawarenessweek #mentalhealthawarenessweek2017 #harnaamkaur

#Regram @grlpwrgang !!! Tomorrow I'm going to be joining an awesome group of ladies @buggiedout @mre.soeur @bryonygordon @michellekennedylon @pipingablack to talk about spinning plates whilst staying sane in aid of Mental Health Awareness Week #MHAW17.

We'll also be sharing our own stories. There are still some tickets left so please come along if you're free. Half of the ticket cost goes to @heads_together!!! Come!!. It's bloody GOOD too talk πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• This event is @moveyourframe in Kings Cross. #OverSharingISCaring #StrongerTogether πŸ’•

It's not been easy for Britain's most successful archer. He's had to overcome a traumatic accident and battle mental health issues.

#tfw you're turning 23 tomorrow but your mental health has been terrible lately, so you take a meaningless insta-friendly selfie for validation. Don't be afraid of having an open conversation about your mental health. #mhaw17 #mentalhealthawarenessweek

Hats off to @iamjamesmcvey on @lbc earlier talking very openly and competently about mental health #mhaw17

EXCITING NEWS... Been an absolute pleasure to be a part of the #hereforyou @instagram video.
But it doesn't end there, check #Instagram page tomorrow as they are profiling me and @andysmanclubuk on their page with 222 million followers.
Talk about getting the #ITSOKAYTOTALK message out there.

Completely blown away to be able to amplify our message out to so many people world wide. We will never forget why we started this and why we continue each and everyday to do this.. the pain that was left from the death of Andy. Nothing has ever changed from the first day we started and it never will. It will just keep growing because #ITSOKAYTOTALK and we want the world 🌎 to know and now they will. Thank you @instagram πŸ‘ŒπŸΌβ€οΈ #mhaw17 #mentalhealthawareness


So much life has happened between these photos. There have been relapses, treatment programs, medication, and a couple hospitalizations. Honestly, the last time I felt as good as I do now probably was around when the picture on the left was taken. Time will pass regardless, might as well spend as much of it as possible actually living πŸ’–

A couple weeks ago I gave away two dresses to a friend who could actually zip them up. They both fit me at a point when I was in recovery, but still much smaller than I am now. It has been over 3 years since I could comfortably wear them. I told myself they were expensive so I'd keep them just in case. Every few months I'd torture myself by wondering if maybe, just maybe, I could squeeze into them. They are no longer taking up coveted closet space. They are no longer an annoying reminder that bodies change. Pleasant bonus: my friend looks absolutely GORGEOUS in both of them πŸ’– Celebrate the victories.. no matter how "small".

Some People , Better Then Others Are Able Adapt, To Change, & To Fight Through The Evil & Darkness We Have Been Subjected To
As Hard As it Was For Me To Personally Except.
Everything Must Have Been Balanced To Be Able To Exist Inside Of It.
Including Overall Goodness.
