Mental health has been a very personal topic to me, as it's something that I've struggled with and still struggle with daily. It has been a challenge, from acknowledging that mental health disorders are a real thing, to realizing that I suffer from it, to combating the day to day demons.
First, I just want to thanks Alexotos with all my heart for helping me be brave enough to do this event. Please see his site for the wonderful work he does!
I'm blessed to be able to support a cause that I truly feel passionate about. It's something that I'm nervous, yet really excited, to be an advocate for. Learn more about MHA here, and IDONTMIND here.
Donations to IDONTMIND helps to expand the reach and resources of their campaign and bring hope to those who need it most. Their biggest resource right now is their IDONTMIND Journal, a collection of helpful and inspiring articles on mental health. From actionable tips for improving your mental health to personal stories, it’s a space for honest, open, and informative conversations. Since the IDONTMIND Journal was launched in 2019, they've written nearly 100 journal articles that are reaching over 125,000 people. Donations to IDONTMIND also helps to amplify Mental Health America's many amazing resources like their screening program. MHA's online screening tool is one of the quickest and easiest ways to determine whether you are experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition.
I hope you will join me and Alex in an awesome event, to hopefully make even the smallest difference.
I want to start open conversations to destigmatize mental health, so I will be opening up an anonymous journal a few days before the event to share your stories. Alex and I will be reading as many of these as possible on stream, so if any of you want to share your stories and experiences with mental health with us and our Twitch chat, please feel free to do so! And join in on the conversations during stream!
Please note that the journal will be open and closed before the event just so we can double check for troll entries and divide the stories evenly between us to share. I will be announcing on other social media platforms when this form will go live so be sure to follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or join my Discord.
