Hi, my name is Sachin and i have battled with a mental illness for quite a few years. My personal Battle with depression : http://wp.me/p8upha-v
We live in a society where it is a crime to be ‘not okay‘. People always have a lot to say about mental illness. Self proclaimed non professional life coaches don’t really help the cause. They say everything is going to be alright when we all know it doesn’t work that way.

A 24-year-old college student allegedly committed suicide by jumping from the 19th floor of a hotel in suburban Bandra on Monday, police said.
Arjun Bhardwaj, who hailed from Bengaluru, was studying at a college in suburban Vile Parle. Bhardwaj had booked a suite on the 19th floor of a the Taj Land's End hotel in Bandra on Monday. He jumped from the room by breaking the glass of the window around 6:30 PM and posted a video on a social networking site about steps to kill oneself before taking the extreme step.
In the suicide note, he admitted that he was suffering from depression and was fed up with his life. He had also apologised to his parents for taking the drastic step.
In a statement to The Times of India, the police said that Bhardwaj was depressed after repeatedly failing in his engineering exams.
"I'm a drug addict...I don't want to live anymore and hence committing suicide," the official said, quoting the suicide note purportedly written by him.
The toughest battle anyone can go through is not the one with society, nor with any other person, but it’s with the person you see in the mirror every morning. There are many cases widely highlighted into many podiums where finally the person gets victimized under circumstances. People still have a cloudy idea of what mental illness really is. Depression can make it difficult to do everyday things, like getting out of bed or concentrating at work. Depression can also be incredibly difficult to talk about. I really hope this will help and make some of you aware of what a person goes through while battling anxiety and depression and how you could probably help someone and make this world a little less tough.
