My name is Jasmine Abel and I am from Lake Charles, Louisiana. I am a recent graduate from McNeese State University and looking to connect and get as many people struggling with depression help. I am currently the queen of the Queen of Pink organization which raises awareness for breast cancer patients and now looking to raise awareness for mental health. In our small town, mental illness isn’t 100% taken seriously. Most of our town consists over older people who don’t really believe in mental illness and have stigmatized getting help for it to the point people are scared to get help due to getting judged. I want to raise awareness around my community using Project Semicolon.
