Megan is a first-time mum navigating motherhood, depression, anxiety, and other conditions.

Wanting to help those who may be struggling with similar difficulties, Megan started a blog to relay her experiences and show any fellow people they're not alone. 

Megan is also a mental health advocate who talks at various charity and healthcare conferences.

Her goal is to help the UK's mental health support services provide tailored help to their patients and clients.  

Megan's History with the Condition

Before becoming a mother, Megan suffered for approximately ten years from anxiety and depression. She's tried everything from medication to cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to stabilise her conditions and feel in control. 

Megan was also diagnosed with PTSD in 2016, following an experience that led to night terrors and regular flashbacks. 

She hopes you find her stories honest, direct, and helpful.
