Mental health awareness saves lives. Period.
I stayed sick for a long time because I didn’t understand that mental illness is a disease like diabetes or cancer that I had very little control over. When I was sick, my illness wouldn’t allow me to understand that it wasn’t my fault. Believing that I was not sick, just lazy, almost killed me.
It is my passion that no one has to suffer as long as I did and that my advocacy can help spread awareness instead of disease. If you are suffering, please get help. Find people who understand. Mine was a long, painful journey back to health – yours doesn’t have to be.
I’ve worked with:
I’ve written for (click for publications):
- WebMD (My Happy Pill, Frog Hopping, Baby Steps, Trying to Balance)
- WEGO Health
- International Bipolar Foundation
- North Hollywood Patch (Bipolar Motherhood, Postpartum OCD, Meds)
And sometimes people even write about me!
I also have 15 years of public speaking experience.
