Re: [CHAT] Discussing mental health with your family

Also wow I didn't know my siblings and I could be a whole quidditch team.... I don't think they would be very good at it though they'd probably fight @DirtWitch

Re: [CHAT] Discussing mental health with your family

Time for one last !
What can you do if you're not okay with discussing mental health issues with your family?  Is it okay to seek help without them knowing?

Re: [CHAT] Discussing mental health with your family

I'm finding it really interesting how many people in families have shared experiences of mental illness or at least personal struggles and that's opening up more conversation about it. I think it's a big way we open up discussion about mental illness in society as a whole. 

Re: [CHAT] Discussing mental health with your family

Hey @redhead keen to talk about this if you're ever up for it. Do you want to make the thread or shall I?

Re: [CHAT] Discussing mental health with your family

@Stealth_ninja I'm really glad that you've been able to get your family to open up more! It looks like you're taking a lot of steps to build an more open and communicative dynamic within your family; I hope that you also take a lot of time to care for your own feelings too!

I think lots of people do. It's hard to talk about with family, and in a lot of ways it's easier when you're talking to a professional, or anonymously online (hello Smiley Tongue).

I first got help when I was 17 and didn't tell my family about it. Later on I told dad and he was supportive and then supported me financially for my psychology sessions which was good.
I didn't tell mum and I'm glad it was that way. I still don't tell mum. She doesn't even know I had surgery this time.
