"I was a victim of bullying when I was 11 yrs old. Being victimized became an issue for me in 5th grade. The hurtful
words from my classmates buried me in insecurities and disgust for myself. I developed Generalized Anxiety and i constantly worried
how people would treat me and think of me.....This was not the way I wanted to live for the rest of my life. In 5th grade I was provided
with a guidance counselor that changed my life. She assured me that my flaws meant nothing for the character inside of me!! Being
bullied changed my life forever in the most positive way possible. I want to help end the mental health stigma, encourage people to
seek help even those who are in their teens, to get help"
"Suicide & Mental Illness have been a presence in my life for many years. Have experience with depression & OCD but most people
would never suspect anything at all. Mental Illness strained the relationship I had with my parents, who were unable to
understand my struggle & looked someone to blame. I also have been impacted through the experience of others. Have convinced a
dear friend to seek professional help for his suicidality. He has begin a path to recovery."
EDUCATING for a healthy tomorrow; one person; one family; one community at a time!
