I have never had depression.

I am not a psychiatrist, nor a psychologist, nor counseller, nor any other kind of medical profession.

I am a normal woman who has a passion for understanding mental health. I believe that the medicalisation of many mental health 'disorders' over the last few decades has actively contributed to the explosion of mental health problems in the 21st century, prolonging the suffering of many, and dare I say it even making it worse!

I have launched the Mental Health Revolution because I want to start a difficilt conversation which aims at democratising mental health - putting it back into the hands of each and every individual. I have worked for the last six years with an organisation which TEACHES good mental health, it TEACHES the foundations of what makes for a strong, resilient mind and attitude, and TEACHES the resources required to ensure these foundations remain strong and tenacious during the most difficult of times.

I do have a story, but this journey is not about me. It is about you, and the people in your family. It is about the people you work with, and the people you work for, and the people who work for you. It is about the professionals who work in the system, and those who try to buck the system. It is about your children, and their children, and you as children, and your parents, and even their parents. It is about your teachers, and school kids, and the immense pressures we put each and everyone under every summer during exam times.

So I do believe that I am as well placed as anyone to ask some pretty tough questions about why, in the UK alone, 64 million prescriptions were written for antidepressants - 18,000 of those were for children aged under 12. Why? Why were these kids not taken to one side and gently taught about belief systems, and self esteem, and positive thinking.

Something somewhere is going wrong. Join me in this journey to try and take back control of our mental health - help me to destigmatise it, demystify it, demedicalise it. Let's see if we can't aim at reducing the number of antidepressants, and give people back the power they need to better manage their own personal psychological foundations.
