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.

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. Did I know him personally? … More For Those Who Were Triggered #suicideprevention #mentalhealth #depression #TW #MHBlog
