Promoting positive mental health within the WordPress community

Please read the following to camera in your natural working environment, use your phone, webcam or whatever you have to hand. The first line; read only whatever applies to you i.e. “I’m a WordPress consultant”.

You don't even have to read all the script!

Take a brief pause at the end of each sentence and don’t worry if you mess up! If you need to re-read anything then go ahead, just leave a brief pause between reads, you don’t need to read it all in one sitting. Thank you for taking the time to help us promote and raise awareness of positive mental health within the WordPress community.

The Script

(Don't forget to look into the camera) 

I’m a WordPress developer / designer / agency owner / educator / consultant / freelancer / content manager / marketer / contractor / engineer / implementer / user / [insert here].

I chose to work for a company

I chose to run my own business

I chose to be part of a community


I made a decision


I didn't choose to feel alone

I didn't choose to struggle financially

I didn't choose to feel depressed


Sometimes decisions are made for me

Sometimes I'm not in control

Sometimes I feel like giving up


But not today


Join us through October

And beyond, as we say...



Help us help you,

The WordPress community.

Together we're stronger.


Join us as we support WP&UP

Vibrant and strong

Balanced community

And remember

Let's #NeverGiveUP
