Three vloggers talk directly to their mental illnesses.
If you could speak to your mental illness, what would you say to it?
As part of 5 live’s State of Mind season, we’ve spoken to three vloggers who had a message for theirs.
Olivia, who suffers from bipolar disorder; Milly, who battled anorexia and anxiety; and Anya, who has depression, say hope got them through their most difficult times.
To her bipolar, Olivia says: “You make us believe we are worthless, but we’re not - we’re powerful beings, we’re magical beings.
“Hope has helped me through it."
