I hope every one is staying healthy, strong, positive, and creative.
In the summer of 2017 I moved from Chicago to Boise. I began visiting all the beautiful parks with an intention of meeting new people and to spread enthusiasm for mental health awareness. People were extremely supportive and willing to share their personal struggles, challenges, and stories.
As an advocate for mental health awareness my sincere intention is to encourage and inspire others to have a conversation about mental health. To pursue a creative outlet. To reach out for help and support. No one should feel like they are alone in this.
Through my personal struggles with mental illness I have learned to acknowledge, accept, and embrace my mental health challenges.
Every day I work tenaciously on my mental health. In order for me to manage, challenge, and battle the beast I have designed my own daily script. Which includes multiple check ins, painting, psychotherapy, weightlifting, mediation, cognitive behavioral therapy, medication, and support groups (Including family and close friends).
On we go. Stay tuned.
