Hi all,
I'm a 30 year old female from Australia who will be commencing study in the mental health field in a few weeks time. I've always had an interest in it, and suffer from some mental health issues of my own.

I thought I'd join up, say g'day, and seek advice on some things. :)

You're very welcome here, I hope you find the site both supportive and informative.

I always have the utmost respect for anyone working in or wishing to enter the field of mental health, I believe having lived experience will make you a very valuable asset.

When under my mental health team I had a support worker who was bipolar and had suffered psychosis in his youth and his input and insight was extremely valuable to me, he was one of the best workers they had. He had also published three books on mental health and I was very eager to read them, I thoroughly enjoyed them all.

Welcome to the forums! Like NWiddi above me said, I respect your choice in commencing study in the mental health field. :) If you wanna talk advice, I've been going to a therapist and psychiatrist for about a decade now so I might know a thing or two. xD Anyways, feel free to message if you want, and take care!

See I like the idea of people who work in the field that have the experience. People suffering from mental health issues will relate better and likely trust more, as opposed to someone who learned everything through a text book.
