Hey. My name’s Phil Beastall. To say I’ve struggled with my mental health would be an understatement, to say I’ve overcome my problems and am fully ‘healed’ would be an exaggeration, but to say I’m self aware and at peace with myself would be bang on.
You’re probably thinking "Oh great, another blog about mental health" or "OK, I get it, you had problems, but so does everyone". Well, you’re right. I’m not going to pretend that I’m special or any different than most of the population. However, there’s one thing I do think makes this blog slightly different to the rest…and that’s honesty. Brutal f*cking honesty.
