My Very First Published Mental Health Advocacy Article!

On June 6, 2018 my first published article was released through OC87 Recovery Diaries about my journey with bipolar and how much support groups have helped me. Please take a moment to check it out if you haven’t already!

A lot went into this article finally coming out and more details about that will be coming soon in a guest blog post for Julie A. Fast, one of my first inspirations in the world of mental health advocacy. I’m so glad that I’m in a place where I can’t put my story out there publicly to help break the stigma. I know many others can’t YET due to work, or issues with family and friends. But we’re working toward a day where stigma around mental health will be a thing of the past and we’ll all be able to talk about it. We’re working toward a day where suicide numbers will be going down because people will feel like they can get help without feeling shame.

If you are in a place where you don’t feel like you can discuss your mental health struggles openly then please try out a local or online support group! DBSA has some amazing options and Gabe Howard runs my favorite closed Facebook group for Depression and Bipolar. And if you are in a place where you feel comfortable discussing a mental health diagnosis openly, please do! We need to work together to bust the stigma!

If you have any questions at all about support groups or if you or a loved one is struggling, please feel free to reach out to me!
