Have you ever wanted to give up?
To drop everything and give in to self-doubt and challenge?
I spent years believing that if I tried harder I could be better, normal. I failed to recognize that my challenges were caused by untreated mental illness as opposed to a flaw in character or a lack of effort. I never thought I was good enough.
I started volunteering in the hopes of giving my personal experience positive meaning. Through over 7 years and 2500 hours of supporting people as a volunteer, I found an incredible passion for mental health advocacy.
Through workshops, talks and keynotes, I raise awareness for mental health and provide people with the guidance, support and knowledge necessary to promote their own mental wellness.
