A selection of quotes

  • “The advice I’d give to somebody that’s silently struggling is, you don’t have to live that way. You don’t have to struggle in silence. You can be un-silent. You can live well with a mental health condition, as long as you open up to somebody about it, because it’s really important you share your experience with people so that you can get the help that you need.” — Demi Lovato
  • “I found that with depression, one of the most important things you can realize is that you’re not alone. You’re not the first to go through it, you’re not gonna be the last to go through it,” — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
  • “You are not alone. You are seen. I am with you. You are not alone.” — Shonda Rhimes
  • “The experience I have had is that once you start talking about [experiencing a mental health struggle], you realize that actually you’re part of quite a big club.” — Prince Harry
  • “Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary.” — Fred Rogers
  • “There is hope, even when your brain tells you there isn’t.” ― John Green
  • “Just remember, you are not alone, in fact, you are in a very commonplace with millions of others. We need to help each other and keep striving to reach our goals.” — Mike Moreno
  • “The humanity we all share is more important than the mental illnesses we may not” ― Elyn R. Saks
  • “Life doesn’t make any sense without interdependence. We need each other, and the sooner we learn that, the better for us all.” — Erik Erikson
  • “Mental health problems don’t define who you are. They are something you experience. You walk in the rain and you feel the rain, but, importantly, YOU ARE NOT THE RAIN.” — Matt Haig

  1. Here are some lines by a fellow poet at our poetry group meeting today …
    “What town reveals secrets?
    What path remembers feet?
    What rain complains where it falls?
    What ocean speaks of grief?
    What wind cannot hold a tune?
    What fruit does not delight?
    What flower sells its perfume?
    What season is not right?” … Mark Vincent (Geelong)
