An important moment in my recovery: saying that I was choosing myself by letting others help me, and I want to help others be able to do the same.

 

I am here because I almost wasn’t. I ignored my mental health for as long as I could, and when I finally couldn’t anymore, the road back to health was a very long and uncomfortable one that I wish upon no one. I found compassion for myself and hoped that by sharing my story, art, experiences, and knowledge, I could help others realize that you are worthy and deserving of compassion and so much more. With a goal to create a community without stigma, and a space of non-judgment, there can be creative expression around the topic of mental health. 

 

My journey has brought me to a place where I need to do everything in my power to reduce stigma around mental health, teach others to have compassion for themselves, and pass on what I have learned to help anyone and everyone who will listen.

Believing that I could do it alone, caused me further pain. This community is for everyone, so even those who feel alone know they don’t have to be, and those who have no one to express themselves too, can find a space to be themselves and realize there is no reason to be anyone else. 

 

This community is one of non-judgment, and is for everyone.
