Ben McConnell

I was in my early twenties when my mental health started to impact my life. All of a sudden, I started to lose the ability to control my happiness. I was spiralling and I really had no idea why. After battling through a period of little to no self-worth I had bottomed out and had lost any hope of regaining control. I confided in my mother about what was happening and was soon sitting in front of a doctor. This single decision changed my life for the better. I now had an understanding of what was happening, but more importantly when I told someone else about my struggle, I felt a literal weight lift off my person. This is why I’m so passionate about opening up on mental health.
