*soppy post alert*
I think having someone in your life that doesn't mind silly little things you love, is so important. Everyone knows I'm a massive Disney fan, and when I mentioned to @mrpat1990 how cute the compare the market adverts were at Christmas, he got me a little Elsa meerkat. Its the little things, because he didn't have to go out his way to get one, it wouldn't have made any difference to us. But it always means so much when someone remembers your little things and it's what they love about you. He also turned up with some gorgeous daisies, which are my fave flowers. Having someone in my life who listens to my ramblings and knows the things I love, makes me feel so cherished and valued, and even though my self confidence doesn't rely on him, it's always nice to feel like someone thinks you're important.
Not often I'm left with out words, but when I finished the last episode of 13 Reasons Why I was literally left speechless, feeling as if I had so much to say, but I couldn't put any of it in to words.
I found the series one of the most powerful things I have watched to date, The story addressed so many issues that are relevant to young people in this day and age and I think the brutally honest showing of all this was something that needed to be done, bullying is real, emotional and sexual abuse is real and this show didn't shy away from that & that is what I think made it so powerful and hard hitting.
There is probably something addressed within the series that every viewer can relate too, I know I found so many issues relatable. It makes you stop and think - we really have no idea what other people are going through. We have no idea how a silly immature action can snowball into something as horrible and serious as a lost life. One kind word could save a life, just as quickly as a horrible word can end one.
When I go away, I want you to miss my absence. You won't. I go away so often you don't even notice. So how could you miss someone who hasn't been present? -
What I'm really trying to say is: I am broken and I'm going away to heal. #Absence#MentalHealth

As Mental Health Awareness week starts tomorrow, I felt that it would be appropriate to post this; and begin the journey, that the awareness campaign Ive been developing, will take me on:
Since my accident I have always felt a little off kilter; impulsive, irrational, aggressive and constantly under stress. Those characteristics are not my own, they've been formed and created from hiding my own personal issues over the passed 13 years. Having been diagnosed with PTSD 8 months ago, it has put a lot into perspective... I up and left my career in film to pursue something a little closer to my heart and that will (hopefully) touch more hearts and minds than any of the movies or television series ' I've worked on in the past ever have, or will. Over the next year I will be preparing a mental health awareness campaign to not only help raise awareness of the many issues that a lot of us suffer from, but will help break the stigma of mental health and help heal the people who suffer. My name is Wes Van Hart, I suffer from PTSD and GAD and I refuse to continue to sit in silence. Help me and many others this week, to speak up, raise awareness and end the stigma. .
Some of you may or may not know that it was this exact weekend last year where my struggle with depression went from occasional lows to a situation where I was struggling to get out of bed in the morning and function. Days, weeks and months passed by of hoping I wouldn't wake up, going into work on auto pilot, coming home as quickly as possible to hide in my room went by. Hiding away from the real world. Binge eating, excessive drinking, signing up to every other gym fad programme in an attempt to escape the reality that things were completely out of control. With the help of family, friends and some mental health professionals I have made it this far. So many times over the last 12 months I doubted if I would even reach this milestone. Not naive enough to think I'll never be down or have struggles again but am definitely equipped to face the demons better this time.
Depression is so much more than feeling low, its a venom that seeps in slowly and takes over. Looking forward to positing this time next year with an even more positive post, hopefully I can help someone along the way with their battle. We all have our struggles, it's the small gestures along the way that help you get through each day #mentalhealth#itsoknottobeok#friends#depression

Depression can be hard to explain to others who have not experienced it. Sometimes people wonder "how did I not know?" Or "I didn't see any signs". Sometimes depression is hard to see. It's not a tangible thing. There are different types of ways people experience it. So, how does one know how and when to help someone battling with depression?
There are 2 ways to solve this:
1. The person who experiences depression must learn about depression and the symptoms they feel, their triggers, coping skills and how to communicate that to others. Then, must be willing and open to talk about this with someone they trust.
2. The person who wants to help must be willing to learn about depression symptoms, be non-judgmental, listen, and learn the signs. This person should not try to "fix it" or justify it.
Let's work together to help more people as well as help ourselves!
Last night was not a good mental health night but I still made myself get up and walk this morning to clear my head. Thanks for all the friends who listened and gave advice you guys are amazing.
