It can even impact negatively on our confidence and self-esteem. The good news is that these are phases we are going through and phases generally never last. They do, however, force you to go on a journey of discovery to find strengths you never thought you had.

Deanne. Brisbane/Australia

This story/video is about a young woman whose personal challenges included mental health issues, sexuality, eating disorders, homelessness and self harm.

She quotes "I know reconnecting with my family/friends was a really big part of finding meaning in my life. Moving to Brisbane, somewhere I feel I belong, gave me a connection to myself. A connection that made me feel as if I only started existing when I felt I belonged where I was, my mind finally felt connected to the body it walked in and to the ground on which my body walked.
Age and maturity definately helped. With maturity I began to become more self aware of my mind, thoughts and behaviours. With this self awareness comes the ability to identify when I may be slipping again so I can engage in support before I engage in previous destructive ways to cope with living with a mental illness.
I know the easiest moments are the moments I feel I have purpose and meaning to my existance. Whether this be a good job, a satisfying school experience, a good group of friends or an enjoyable hobby...feeling a sense of accomplishment feeds the healthy part of my mind. The more I feed this healthy part of my mind with positive fuel, the better my mind works and the less chance there is for my negative mind to take control. For so long I depended on psychiatrists, hospital staff and others to get me well but I have realised the only one who can keep me well
I need to read the warning signs, I need to live a healthy lifestyle, I need to engage in support when I feel I should and I need to hold onto and connect with who I really am. I spent too many years connecting with and feeding energy to my illness, it consumed me and I identified with it causing me to loose sight of Deanne and only see mental illness. I still need to connect with Deanne some days, connect with my values and morals, to ensure I don't loose sight of myself and who I really am. I am not a mental illness, I am Deanne, a young woman who has a mental illness."

No matter where you are, who you are or what you are studying our tips and techniques will help you achieve success.

    Student Self-Help is about 'self-help'. That means you helping you. Taking action. It's about you coming out of your comfort zone, taking that step forward, shaking off all that rubbish that you have been carrying around. You need to get motivated. You need to find that determination and persistence deep down inside you. You need to grow a positive mental attitude.

    If you think you will never achieve at school or college then you have already put up a huge barrier that will stop you moving forward. Your self-image can either be your greatest barrier or it can be your greatest motivator.

    Low self-esteem, low confidence, self-doubt come from 'believing' that you are not good enough, not intelligent enough, not as clever as others. Let me tell you that if you believe these things YOU ARE 100% WRONG! You need to change your beliefs.

    You are as good as any person on this planet. You have strengths, abilities, qualities and skills just waiting to be found. You will achieve in life, but only if you have enough fire in your belly. Commonly, known as passion.

    From today you are going to begin to get rid of that negative little voice or those negative thoughts that keep churning over inside your head. From today you are going to start questioning, arguing, disagreeing and standing up to that side of you that is negative.

    Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

    You are about to find the real you, the powerful you, the great you, the spiritual you. The human spirit is the greatest thing in the universe and you are it.

    At Student Self Help it is our intention to give you as much as possible to help you in your journey towards success. We will give you learning tips and techniques, resources to help you overcome the barriers that you face, sources that can help you with any fears or phobias that you may have. You will find many things over the coming weeks so please add our link to your blog, website or bring us up in forums. Lastly, please visit Student Self Help regularly.
