    “I believe in supporting anyone who is willing to become a mental health advocate because it is a valid illness that isn’t recognized in society, and it has all sorts of labels and stigmas around it because people don’t understand it because you can’t see it.

    It is more the norm than what our true definition of normal is.  So, given the fact that it’s a generational thing for our family - I see it in my kids, see it in myself, see it in my mom, see it in granny - it’s nothing to be ashamed of.  It’s out there in everyday life, it’s just that our society has decided to make it shameful.”
