I will be posting something important about mental illness every day throughout the month of May on my blog in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month.
Please keep visiting my blog My Loud Bipolar Whispers and look for statistics or other beneficial information related to mental illness to increase awareness, educate, reduce mental illness stigma and prevent suicides.
It is crucial and imperative for all of us to get involved and save lives.
So, please visit my blog every day, but especially every day throughout the month of May.
Mental illness awareness and education can save lives.
Opening the dialogue about mental illness can save lives.
Sharing your story can save lives.
Please see my post about my new campaign titled, “There’s Glory in Sharing Your Story.” I need your help and hope you will be interested in participating in my new campaign. Thank you for checking it out.
I write to share my story openly and honestly about living, surviving and thriving with mental illness to increase awareness, educate, reduce stigma, prevent suicide, inspire, give hope and let God's love shine through me and touch you.
I have given many presentations to share my story, inspire others, increase awareness, educate and reduce the stigma of mental illness and suicide. I have given presentations at a local University, spoken as a certified NAMI presenter and spoke to police officers and social workers for their Crisis Intervention Training. I have also been interviewed by our local newspaper and news station to share my story.
I finished writing my first, very rough draft of my memoir in November. I need to add more to it and edit it a lot. It is a work in progress, but I pray one day it will be completed and I will get it published one way or another.
God has saved my life numerous times. He is always with me through all my struggles, holding my hand and catching my tears. There is always hope and recovery is possible. I am living proof of that. When you have hope, you have life.
