- I am climbing Bear Mountain with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails. This is a very personal journey for me as someone who has lifelong battles with mental health. It’s also important to me to continue to raise awareness so that those who suffer in silence can feel comfortable reaching out for help and support. Nature heals and is worth preserving.
