Everyone’s experience with mental health and the mental states mentioned in the experience, including dissociation, depression, intrusive thoughts and panic attacks is different and unique. This is a subjective projection of my own experiences with OCD and depression. Please keep in mind that the coping techniques mentioned in this experience are by no means extensive or all-encompassing. Those featured are ones that work for me, and may not work for everyone. Please speak to a mental health professional or visit mind.org.uk for more information on how to treat and cope with mental health issues.
