To End Mental Health Stigma.
Promote wellness; recovery through support/education.

In conjunction with this I also promise to take care of my own mind, because it too is very important
To help people in times of crisis.
To stand against stigmas associating mental health.
To help break the stigmas surrounding mental illness, to give a voice to those who feel silenced, and to give strength to those who feel hopeless.
All relationships are unique, no exceptions!

Speak Up

I want to inspire others, make them feel like they’re not alone because, and now I’m talking to you, you truly aren’t. There are so many people that love you and care about you. One day things will get better, maybe not today nor tomorrow but one day. And trust me when I say this, you are worth it. You are worth everything there is because all life is precious, including yours.
