Hello! My name is Gareth Downs, I have suffered with my mental health for the last 18 months. It started with anxiety depression, I then developed a mild case of psychosis. I have been on medication for just over 12 months. Formal information from doctors and medical websites didn’t help me, I want real stories and to talk to actual individuals that are experiencing similar times. With hopes that this forum and blog can actually help some people as much as I hope it helps me. If you want to hear more about my story then there is a tab at the top of the website for just that. 

Thank you for finding this site and thank you for opening up.
