I am so passionate about advocating for mental health awareness and support! I have lived with depression and generalized anxiety disorder as well as OCD and panic disorder for about 6 years. I also have a long history of mental illness in my family and extended family so I am very familiar with many different types of mental illness. I strongly support the use of medicine, therapy, community resources, and more for anyone and everyone that might need it. I am always so happy when people ask me about my semicolon tattoo because I believe every opportunity to talk about mental health is an opportunity to build awareness and destigmatize mental illnesses. I would love to help share the mission of the semicolon project within my community and for the greater good.
