Survival StoriesSharing Hope
When dealing with mental illness, sometimes success simply means choosing to live another day. Those who suffer from depression due to traumatic brain injury or mental illnesses often feel alone. They hide in fear of judgment. Yet, when someone breaks an arm or has a life-threatening illness, do they hide in their homes in fear of judgment? No! They reach out for help. Stigma and fear stop those with mental and emotional challenges from reaching out. It’s time to end the stigma. Take the first step by sharing your journey. Show others they are not alone.
Sometimes all it takes for someone to hold on one more day is to know they are not alone – to know they are not the only person struggling.
