World 🌍 Mental Health Day 2021💚

Mental Health Advocate

It’s World Mental Health Day 💚

As someone who suffers from Bipolar Disorder, I celebrate my mental health every day! World Mental Health Day is observed on 10 October every year. This day tries to create awareness about mental health issues.

▪️Despite the progress we have made, there continues to be stigma related to mental health, especially in the African American community!!!

▪️As you go about your day, take time to educate yourself and speak with a loved one! We are fighting battles you wouldn’t understand!

▪️So I celebrate those of you who are suffering, and those of you who suffer in silence! I hope that my story inspires, educates, and helps someone get the services they need!!!

💚Remember YOU are not alone…
💚YOUR illness doesn’t define you
💚YOU are not attention-seeking
💚YOU can’t just snap out of it
💚YOU are not a victim
💚YOU are a survivor

▪️Reach out and seek help, I’m only a DM, text, email away if you need more resources to help you on your journey!!!

Welcome, My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of this awesome blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I didn't have anybody to talk too or share my feelings with, so I decided to share them publicly to help others. I'm passionate and dedicated to bringing awareness about mental health, especially in the African American community. I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness. I’m also the founder of AshesToBeauty Mentoring & Outreach, a virtual online service dedicated to to the positive development and accelerated recovery of girls and women who have experienced abuse and depression, Ashes To Beauty strives to empower women to take their lives back by providing life skill education, one-on-one mentorship and impactful personal tools by which these impacted women can build the foundation for a successful future. Look forward to having you read my blog, 𝓞𝓵𝓲𝓿𝓲𝓪 𝓑. 𝓢𝓱𝓮𝓹𝓱𝓮𝓻𝓭 💋
