In honor of Mental Health Month, I've decided to open the door of opportunity to other parents, caregivers, spouses, and those that struggle daily with mental illness to share their stories.
You've heard my story, now it's your turn to share yours. I understand it takes a lot of courage to share your story of struggle but it also takes a lot of fear to keep you from doing so. I am encouraging you to look fear in the eye and without letting it stare you down...do it. It will help you in the long run and it will help others too.
I invite you to email me your story. I will share them on the page Voices. You don't have to share your name or where you are from. All you have to do is tell your story. You can email me at email@example.com or you can simply send me a message via the comment option on this blog post. Don't worry, the only way your comment will be seen is if I approve it for posting. In this case, I will only copy and paste it to Voices and delete the comment after.
Let's get the conversation started by speaking up...it's the only way to have our voices heard.
I'm a mother with an agenda to save her son from the grips of his mental illness and stop stigma so that those who suffer in silence can seek help without fearing the worse. Join me on this roller coaster ride..you're no longer alone.
