I pledge to be an active listener and friend to those in need, to be their soft place to fall. My heart is wide open.
I pledge to stop any discrimination in my classroom. I will use examples or topics that are brought up by my students as a teaching opportunity to bring awareness to mental health and illness. I will provide a stigma free zone in my classroom where students feel safe.
I pledge to be a voice for mental illness and provide support for those in need. I will also reach out when I am the one who needs help.
Since discovering, Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance Northridge, my life has changed dramatically for the better. I pledge to continue to love and support the members of my community as I have been lovingly supported during times of crisis and life in general.
To live my life as an example to everyone out there to show the world that YES, I have a Mental Illness but NO, it does not define who I CHOOSE to be!!
I believe all minds matter. I believe in helping and supporting all people diagnosed with mental health disorders accept it and show the world how awesome they are in spite of their illness. I believe in speaking up and out about mental health because I understand the struggles of living each day with a mental illness. I am one of the millions diagnosed with a mental illness, and I want to prove to the world I am awesome!
I pledge to try to make a difference in my community. I will strive to support, love and be kind to every person regardless of their differences to me and others. I will take the time to listen before I speak. I will stop using works that could potentially harm others and be courteous to all I run across in life.
I will aim to be the best Mental Health professional and Senior Peer Support Specialist I can be. Building mutual, empowering relationships while holding the hope for myself and others.
