Like father, like daughter? #MentalHealth #MHBlogs #Awareness

I’m just going to jump right on into it… A couple months ago I found out my father was diagnosed with one or more¬†mood¬†disorders (I say it this way because he not as open about it); more likely than not the same ones I was diagnosed with back in 2011. I of course sympathize with … More Like father, like daughter? #MentalHealth #MHBlogs #Awareness

Staying Inside The Lines… #MHBlog #MentalHealth #SuicidePrevention

So the other day I was looking through my room for some documents, and I found this… This isn’t what I was looking for… And you’re probably thinking I colored this in when I was a kid, but I actually did this when I was 23, at a mental health hospital.

Just Some Encouragement…. #MentalHealth #SuicidePrevention #EndSuicide

Every time I set out to write for YNF addressing mental health/illness and suicide, I seem to draw a blank, which is weird because it use to be so easy… A part of me felt like since I didn’t have much support for the task of preventing suicide and addressing mental health matters that I … More Just Some Encouragement…. #MentalHealth #SuicidePrevention #EndSuicide

Too Difficult? #MentalHealth #SuicidePrevention #Christianity

Let’s face it… The Christian church/church organizations, at least in my experience, is inherently terrible at combating mental health/mental illness and suicide; I mean they rarely acknowledge its existence. I mean I get that it’s a touchy subject, but MY GOD… can we touch it a little bit? Can we act as if we aren’t … More Too Difficult? #MentalHealth #SuicidePrevention #Christianity

Listen more with the intention of understanding and less with the intention of solving the problem. Listen more with love and less with judgement. … More Listen… #suicideprevention #WSPD #WSPD14 #MHBlog #TW

You can check it out here: https://yourenotfinished.com/2014/08/05/my-suicide-letter-mentalhealth-mhblog-savealife-triggerwarning/ A new friend of mine was inspired to write her own and gave me the permission to share it in order to inspire others … More My #Suicide Letter: Guest Post #MentalHealth #SuicidePrevention #TW #MHBlog

For Those Who Were Triggered #suicideprevention #mentalhealth #depression #TW #MHBlog

I’m not gonna lie and act like Robin Williams’ untimely death by suicide didn’t effect me negatively… in more ways than one. Of course there is the fact that he was, without a doubt, one of the most talented entertainers in the industry as well as an amazing, loving man.
