Mental Illness. Two words. Many assumptions. Two words, synonymous with guilt, shame and stigma. Two words, misunderstood. Two words, silenced. That is why I am here today to speak to this silence. I am here to share my story. By adding this story to the collage created by many, I aim to change perceptions and create awareness.

    Your father is looking through those pink
    Clouds with pride in you. We need more
    people who understand that a disease is not
    a choice.
    Best to you,
