"My Philosophy on Mental Health & Wellness"
I believe in the importance of ongoing growth and learning as well as destigmatizing mental health. As such, access to mental health and wellness articles provide an important contribution to our society in providing meaningful information, insight and hope to those who struggle. I strive to contribute in a meaningful way to destigmatize mental health through access to resources.”
