Mental health matters. Our feelings, thoughts, and attitudes affect us everyday, and we usually take them for granted. Throughout my life, I have been in a constant uphill battle with myself. I’ve fought tirelessly to reclaim myself and my life, but doing it alone was the hardest part. The stigma that surrounds mental health is toxic, unforgiving, and needs to be stopped. By starting the conversation to end the stigma, only then can progress begin.
I am so lucky to be able to participate in this amazing event, and to show support for those who are struggling. Please consider donating to this incredible organization, it would mean the world to me!
