Why I Created This Blog

Hello everyone! My name is Anna and I am the owner of this blog. I created it to go along with my primary website, http://www.DepressionAdviceOnline.com/index.html. I created my primary website because I have family members and friends who have been victims of Depression. I also experienced Depression a while back although it was not as serious as some of those I list. Depression is something that no one is immune to. People of all ages, sex, nationalities and economic backgrounds can be victims of this terrible illness. With this blog, as with my primary website, I wish to post helpful articles and links so that anyone suffering from this illness can educate themselves and get the help they need.

Please feel free to post your comments or articles you've found helpful. Many times it helps to know that we are not alone and that others have experienced the same thing. It is my hope that together, we can all feel better about ourselves and lead healthy, happy lives.

Good health to you all,
Anna

Hi,

I like your piece on self-harm. I have been a self-harmer for 33 years, although I rarely self-harm no and in less extreme was as I have done over the past few years. I have now had therapy which has greatly helped me to accept the person I am. Dealt with many isssues and come to terms with them. I now run self-help/social group in the UK for people who self harm and for their family, friends and loved ones. I get a lot of calls and e-mails from teenagers who self-harm, primarily dealing with exam pressure, bullying and abuse. I must commend you on this piece as in todays society there are many teenagers who self-harm, along with adults too. The group has a web site called Inside out. If you are interested take a look http://www.iout.org

Best Wishes
