“My Philosophy on Mental Health & Wellness”
I have a passion to communicate and help reach those that struggle with mental health. As someone who has struggled with depression and anxiety throughout my life, I know the pain and ripple effect symptoms can have on a person, their friends and family. I have worked hard to turn my mental health issues from barriers to happiness to become strengths. This allows me to share first-hand knowledge of what it takes to build resilience and learn the skills to work towards becoming healthier and enjoying life to the fullest.
