Hello, I'm Jessica and from now until Friday, May 10th, I’m spreading awareness and sharing my story about mental illness!
This will be my 4th year participating in One Brave Night for mental health. I've had my own personal journey with mental illness. My twenties we plagued by severe mental illness and addiciton, and I had to fight for my life everyday. I lived with mental illness and addiction for a long time because I was too ashamed and ill to ask for help. Eventually, with the support of family, friends, and a myriad of services offered by CAMH, I was able to get the help I needed.
I feel grateful got a second chance at living a life not defined by mental illness, and want others to also have that chance, because I beleive that #MentalHealthisHealth.
Thank you for making a donation and helping me reach my goal.Together we will break down stigma, fund innovative research, and provide access to new and promising treatments for people living with mental illness.
