\” Anything that\’s human is mentionable and anything that\’s mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings , they become less overwhelming, less upsetting , and less scary\”~ Fred Rogers
In 2012 I chose to join hike with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. HIKE for Mental Health is a 100% volunteer organization and I am proud to once again climb Mt Washington to help erase the stigma of mental illness. I want people to feel comfortable sharing their feelings and asking for help. I myself have battled with anxiety at different times through my life and was grateful to have people I could turn to help me conquer my fears .
Sir Edmund Hillary said \”It\’s not the mountain we conquer,but ourselves\”. I do this for my mental health and for yours . At 6288 feet Mt Washington is the highest peak in the Northeast and home of the world\’s worst weather. I would like to raise a dollar for every foot of the mountain that tests my fortitude each year . 80 % of your tax deductible donation goes to Mental Health research and 20% goes to the conservation of wilderness trails .
