My top 3 articles:
1) Confidence is key By Taz because it is a very honest and helpful article.
2) Learning disabilities By Joey because it isn't talked about enough.
3) Abusers aren't just men By Sophie because this topic is also never spoken about and it is beautifully written.
Hey, I’m Rebecca. I’m 18 years old and I’m from good old Glasgow in Scotland.
I wanted to contribute to TWE for two main reasons. Firstly, I’ve battled with mental health since I was around 13 and through that time had adults who didn’t listen, didn’t understand or simply didn’t know what to do. On top of that I had was a young carer for a while. Communication with anyone older than me was always something tricky and I turned to online groups for support. I think I’ve learned a lot through my years of battling with mental health and as I head off to attend University to study a Bsc in Psychology and English Literature, I wanted to give back a little to other kids, like me, who couldn’t quite find the words to ask for help.
Secondly, I run my own business blog on mental health and I love writing so this was the perfect way to expand my experience and contribute what I’ve learned from my own work to something that will reach and benefit more people. Always up for a chat if anyone needs it.
