There is sadly still shame and stigma surrounding mental health.
I was diagnosed with a mood disorder when I was thirty, yet I kept my struggles secret and went to crazy lengths so that others wouldn’t know I saw a therapist.
Growing up, I saw my adoptive mother attempt suicide twice. I wish she received the help she desperately needed.
My essay on why I kept my mental health challenges under wraps for over 30 years published on Insider.com yesterday.
Mental health IS health!
Wishing you and yours a safe rest of summer.
