Having conquered clinical depression twice in my life, I am choosing to join a hike with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness, and to show support to others navigating their own mental health journeys. Personally, doing this hike requires that I step out of my decades-old comfort zone. But hey, everyone is worthy of mental health support and personal growth. So forward we go!
