It’s my hope that we will continue to talk about mental health, dissolve the stigma and let the healing begin.
In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, I gathered a list of a few of my posts and poems that describe some of my experiences with mental illness.
We have been in a mental health crisis for some time now and has severely increased since the pandemic.
It is time to be open, honest, and without bias.
You are not alone.
If you think you are experiencing symptoms of mental illness, please talk to somebody.
Talk to a family member or trusted friend, and/or seek professional help such as a Psychiatrist, a medical doctor who diagnoses and treats mental illnesses, or a psychotherapist, such as a psychologist or licensed counselor.
Call 911 or go to the closest emergency room
Call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to reach a 24-hour crisis center, text MHA to 741741
