World Mental Health Day

It was World Mental Health Day on Monday. It's important for us to recognise that people can be struck down with this at any time for many reasons.
The stigma that comes with being in sex work and the pressures the real world puts on sex workers can manifest itself in many ways, with depression being the most common particularly if you have dependents such as children. Sex workers feel they are not granted the same rights being on the fringe of acceptability by society's moral standards so it helps to have someone you can reach out to that doesn't label you as a victim that needs to make good of your life by replacing it with a faith in something you do not recognise but with an understanding and compassion that comes with real world experience of being in the same line of work.
To anyone suffering in silence you can feel assured that help is at hand if you need it with the following people who you may not know are qualified counsellors and therapists. Kelly Berg whom many of us know from her years in the adult industry. Lianne Young from House Of Ardent and to a lesser known extent, Lacey Starr.
If you ever need advice or a listening ear then follow these ladies and DM them for a discrete confident chat and this is not exclusive to the ladies. Men may need help too. Your health and well being is important to those who know , love and respect you. Help is here if you need it
Kelly Berg @KellyBergCSC Lacey Starr @LaceyStarrXXX and Lianne Young @HouseOfArdent
This will be on the topic of discussions at the next UKAP meeting on November 15th. Email or DM if you want to attend
