While we welcome and enjoy all the stories we are receiving on twitter, and hope that nobody minds us retweeting them, we are aware that a lot of people want to talk about their experiences of mental health discrimination but wish to do so anonymously. We completely understand this, for instance if you wanted to talk about things you have experienced in work but some of your work colleagues follow you on twitter. We really don’t mind what your reason is, and this site is where we will post the majority of anonymous content. Just drop us an email: Justsnapoutofit@gmail.com
Also, send us a message if you have a story that is too long for twitter, as we can post it here and if you have a longer story AND want to remain anonymous, well, we’re fine with that too. So send us your tales of mental health discrimination and we promise that we will read every email we get.
Finally, I want to apologise for my slow replies to emails and messages the last day or so, this project has only existed for two days and I have been in work for 20 hours of that, I was not expecting things to gather momentum at quite this pace, so please don’t think that I am ignoring you! I have a few trusted, good friends who have offered to help out as well so don’t worry about sending more messages either.
I hope all of this has made sense, and thank you to everyone who sent messages of support and encouragement, and thanks to everyone who has been open and honest about their experiences. Who knows, maybe we really can help reduce the stigma and taboo of mental illness, and if not, at the very least this is a decent place to have a good old vent!
