#Blog4MH 2017

This blog started out as something fun, with no intention of it ever containing serious topics. When illness struck, it became an outlet and almost all content was focused on it.

I started to garner more viewers – fellow sufferers, I presume. When I realised that, I embarked on one of my life missions – to raise awareness and eradicate stigma. The content slowly became less inconsequential (I hope) and it became a mental health blog. I am happy – and proud – to say that today, this blog isn’t a waste of time. And bandwidth.

The Mental Health Repository: Winding Through The Willows

Through The Willows is a passion project of mine that grew from an idea in March 2017. I managed to get together a small team – all of which were strangers in the beginning – and shared the same mission: to eradicate stigma. With a timely donation to this site, I purchased a domain – http://www.throughthewillows.com. There will be new posts at least twice a week, so do drop by.

The author

I’m working towards becoming a counsellor or therapist; ideally specialising in expressive therapies. More specifically, writing and drama. Perhaps I’ll even bring animals into the therapy room. I write to raise awareness, to (hopefully) aid the eradication of the stigma on mental illnesses, and to let people know that they are not alone.


Previously, a lot of contact details were made available on my site. I will no longer be responding to text messages from readers. You may contact me through this form or by emailing claireleong@mail.com.

  1. I was scrolling through your blog and I found the posts on your past with depression. I read the same posts a year ago, when things were so hopeless. I have come a long way since then, but somehow, these posts still make me feel like I’m not alone. So I wanted to say thank you for putting your story out here. It has given me a lot of hope and comfort. And by no means am I trying to be a creep or a stalker, I just like how you’re such an advocate for mental health ^^
