Hi, My name is Nikita, I am 25 years old, and I am currently doing my Interdisciplinary Master’s Degree in Special Educational Needs and Early Childhood. Welcome to my journey around mental health. I am a mental health sufferer of Anxiety and Panic Attacks. Growing up in an Asian family and suffering with mental health is something that has been one of the hardest things to face. Mental health within the Asian community is hardly ever spoken about and can be perceived quite negatively. It is seen as a way of pitying the individual or belittling them in the eyes of the parents, especially within the older generation. I was so scared of telling people because they may have thought I was ‘ill’ or ‘crazy’, and even though there is so much more awareness now, there is still a lot of stigma behind the words ‘MENTAL HEALTH’. After 4 years of battling, I have come to terms of living with it, and I came out with it to my family. I wanted to share my stories and experiences not to gain sympathy, but to make people aware of what it is and how I dealt with it. Hopefully, there is something in here that can help you too. I want to say that it is ok to talk about mental health issues. I'm not afraid to say I suffer from mental health. I hope after reading my book you realise, learn, and become aware of what it is like to live with mental health, what mental health is, and how it can affect anyone on a daily basis.
