The stigmas of mental illness prevent kids from seeking help they desperately need. You came out so honestly about your struggles and it is beyond inspiring!
As a huge fan, I felt that I could write to you. I just joined LETS, a movement to erase the stigmas of mental illness.
LETS prioritizes prevention and early education by empowering youth to openly discuss mental health concerns faced by their generation and by their communities. Stigma is the number one reason why individuals with mental health concerns do not seek treatment (and when they do, delays of ten years or more are all too common)--in answer, LETS Educational Foundation has created a resource for youth-led initiatives that erase this stigma before it forms.
I would love to hear your ideas and support!
Thank you Adam, from all of us who are struggling and need someone to look up to!
