Why are you passionate about providing mental healthcare?
Mental health care has always been an area that has interested me. Through the course of my own lifespan development and life experiences I learned that a healthy physical and social lifestyle is greatly driven by mental health. Unfortunately, I felt like mental health was often considered that “elephant” in the room and rarely ever addressed. As an advocate for reducing the stigma of mental health and reshaping the attitudes that society has created towards individuals that might struggle with depression, anxiety, bipolar or trauma, I believe that creating a safe and non judgmental space where people can openly share their struggles, successes, and adjustments is the first step in allowing someone to freely accept and admit that mental healthcare is important.
