Hi! I'm Kyle
My name is Kyle I am a Mental Health Blogger, sharing my real life experiences with Mental Health. I write about Major Depressive Disorder, Anxiety Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder, which is arguably one of the most misunderstood mental illnesses. I hope to continue writing and public speaking to help smash the stigma of Mental Health and reach as many people as I can.
Thanks for visiting! My aim with this site is not only to share my journey with Mental Illness but to actually try and make a difference in this world.
There is so much work to be done to end the stigma of Mental Health and to also be as authentic as possible. There are lots of plans in the making for 2020 and I am very excited about the future of this site.
I have recently started public speaking about Mental Health and have not only received incredible feedback but have been humbled by being given such responsibility to talk openly about Suicide, Depression, Anxiety and Borderline Personality Disorder.
Kyle's talk at the Resilience Festival was thought provoking, insightful and engaging. He has a talent in bringing mental illness to the forefront and to make it a comfortable subject to speak about. He has a story that needs to be told and the world needs to hear it.
Kyle and Harvey were the ‘stars’ of our workshop today. Kyle’s speaking style had participants totally engaged in his very first words. His lived experience shared with so much compassion and courage. Such a powerful story told so eloquently. Thank you, Kyle, for caring so much for others, and for sharing the wisdom and hope of your ongoing journey.”

Kyle's talk, at our festival, was extremely moving and informative. He conveys his journey relatably and with candor. His willingness to engage with some of his difficulties on stage, express himself with honesty, and capture a sense of growth and progress, is inspiring. His talk was also well informed regarding Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) - a complex diagnosis, rarely spoken about and heavily stigmatized. Having a capable speaker, like Kyle, explain his own experiences with BPD and present it in a readily understandable fashion was fantastic. Kyle has tremendous potential as a mental health advocate.
