I have survived for 32 years despite my best efforts. Consequently, I talk about mental health a lot because it affects me every day. I talk about it with my therapists, my friends, my family, the Internet. I talk about my scars from self-harm, my suicide attempts, my battle with addiction, the miscarriages I had, and the continuing, day-to-day frustrations of living with my disorders.
This May, AE & Aerie are donating $50K to BC2M! We are deeply grateful for their support of our work to end the stigma surrounding mental illness. In addition to the donation, AE & Aerie are also offering customers an opportunity to support BC2M when checking out at your local Aerie and American Eagle stores and online at www.ae.com and www.aerie.com. We hope that you will shop to support BC2M! This funding allows us to strengthen and expand the network of mental health clubs that we have built on high school campuses across the country.
