As someone who struggles with a mental illness, I have learned over the years to treasure the advice and wisdom gained from many years of treatment. If it were not for the supportive encouragement of my therapist, friends and family, I would not be the person I am today. It is my hope that those in need of help will seek it diligently until they receive the care they deserve. I hope that others may be as fortunate as I have and find a positive support system where they can be helped to overcome their obstacles. No one should have to fight their battles alone in the dark.
