Since getting my medications adjusted sixteen months ago, I’ve become incrementally capable of responding to the common reality despite schizophrenia’s influence. I’m more keenly aware of the difference between what I think is happening and what is actually happening. I’m growing more adept at handling reality as it comes to me, carefully sidestepping any mental pitfalls that might otherwise derail my ensuing thoughts and reactions.
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.
