As someone who is in active recovery from alcoholism and who works daily to maintain her mental health despite a severe mood disorder, Sara wants the stigma associated with mental illness and substance abuse to end.
Don’t Stigmatize Me is Sara’s attempt at sharing inspiring stories, and educating people about mental illness and substance abuse topics. Sara is not a mental health professional, and urges anyone in need of help to pick up the phone and call someone for help.
As a mental health advocate, Sara wants to educate the public and other survivors about mental illness and substance abuse topics. Sara also wants to share with mental health professionals what it is like to be the patient.
If you are a survivor (or are currently surviving each and every day) please share your story with me.
If you would like Sara to collaborate, write something for your publication, or speak at an event, please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
