Erin Jones, a mum of four who struggles with anxiety and is on the autism spectrum, posted this selfie earlier this month.
She posted her selfie with the words:
So this also happened yesterday. I have tried living this life without prescription help. It seems to have me on top of the world one minute and rocking in the corner the next. There is no consistency. I'm done with that. Anxiety and antidepressant medication to the rescue. Sometimes, folks, we just need help.
Her honesty struck a chord and women have been sharing their own selfies with their medication under the hashtag #MightyandMedicated.

Just discovered #medicatedandmighty and I think it makes for such an interesting debate. It took me 10 years living with depression and anxiety to admit to myself that I needed a helping hand and that was ok. - Stephanie Ellen
There's absolutely no shame in needing a little help. I am #MedicatedandMighty #EndtheStigma - lindafrancesca
Joining in with those who've shared their journey, and bringing mine to light for the purpose of #medicatedandmighty.
I have been pretty open about my journey through #postpartumdepression but I haven't talked about how I had to get back on medication recently...
