Hello, I am new here and should start off by saying I am a 26 year old female from Canada. I am certified in Psychosocial Rehabilitation. I may be new to this site and fairly young but I am no stranger to mental illness. I can't really say when things started because I can always remember having some sort of mental illness. I have memories of OCD taking over my daily life even at the age of 3 or 4. I suffered from selective mutism, anxiety, panic attacks and depression as a child. At the age of 14 I had a medical intervention and was placed on antidepressants. At the age of 17 I had my first psychotic break and experienced a manic episode. By the age of 18 I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Here I am now, struggling more than ever and am hoping that I will be able to find on-going support from everyone here. Desperate for help.
