I completely get what you mean: you are not ‘brave’ for coming off antidepressants.

Not at all…I think every decision we make around our mental health, particularly when it comes to reaching out for help, takes courage. What you’ve said is basically the main point of my piece really — that simply living with a mental health condition is hard, whichever way you cut it, so we should never privilege one way of surviving over another (as long as it doesn’t harm anyone else, of course). I’m happy for anyone who finds the right way through for them. Thank you.
