“My Philosophy on Mental Health and Wellness”
Having personally struggled with depression and anxiety for many years, I know just how debilitating mental illness can be on your relationships, well-being, and happiness. I also know that healing is always possible, no matter how difficult the situation may be.
I believe that mental health is of the utmost importance and should be a priority in everyone’s life because that is the place where true happiness and peace can flourish. My personal mission is to not only encourage and empathize with those who are struggling with mental illness but to also help them find the tools they need to heal and thrive in life.
It is my hope that we can one day live in a world where people can talk about mental health freely and positively, and where the people who need help the most can easily find it.
