End of the Beginning

Dear reader,

First of all, thank you for reading my blog over the past year. I hope you have been informed and educated by my story. My story is nearly finished now so I am unsure how to continue blogging about mental health. Feel free to leave suggestions in the comments section.

My objective was to raise awareness and always said I would be happy if my words made a difference to even one person. That objective has been met. Many people have written guest posts and a lot of people have read and commented on my articles over the past 10 months. I have been approached by someone from America and a lady from India and another from Bangladesh, all seeking advice.

It is gratifying that unexpected people approach me and compliment the blog. I have been surprised many times. I wish to thank my brother Mansur who designed the blog and was always there for technical support. I also want to thank my family for supporting me. Finally I wish to thank NHS Pennine Care who have supported me in gaining 85 subscribers.

There is still much work to do in counteracting stigma and raising awareness about mental health. The shame still exists in BAME communities and unwell people are not receiving the help they need.

I have learned a lot from writing the blog including writing and designing, I hope people will keep reading it however it eventually develops.

If you want you can unsubscribe or keep reading! Tell others about it.
