Talking about mental health is not attention-seeking. People die in silence every day due to this judgment and then people finally say “I wish they spoke up.” We live in a society that stigmatizes mental health but mourns suicide.
I choose to be transparent in sharing my story, my struggles, and my journey of healing. I want others to know that they are NOT alone. My goal is to contribute in my own little way to fill in the gaps to ending the stigma on mental health.
I’m thinking I might start up my podcast 🎙 again. I know I wasn’t consistent and I didn’t really have direction. So maybe it’s time to write out some ideas so we can have an open conversation.
