In my four years as a mental health blogger, I’ve taken steps to become a mental health advocate and talk about mental health in a realistic way that centers health and wellness. In that time, I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with other organizations as a blogger and as an advocate to talk about my experience with mental health. My clips include:
I am a Mental Health Advocate for Rethink Mental Health, Incorporated, a non-profit organization based out of Nevada that promotes mental health advocacy, education, and creative expression in an effort to eliminate the stigmatization of mental health, especially among children and young adults.
I was interviewed by NBCLX during their Mental Health Awareness Week for a video story, “How Changing Our Language Can Help Break the Stigma Around Mental Illness”.
