"I only bring this up because it should be discussed openly. Any mental health disorder should be. Check it out, join a team, support yourself, your friends, and your fam!"

TLDR: It’s normal to feel like regulating your emotions is hard and that you constantly have to work on it (#nooffseason) BUT that doesn’t mean you have to do it all alone. Find your squad, be thoughtful and open about your moods, good and bad, acknowledge that fear and vulnerability are an important aspect of life and don’t ever feel shame in being human.

So yeah: this is my #MHLGameFace. It may not be my fiercest game face, but it’s the face of a girl who’s fighting like hell to keep going, and I believe that’s valuable all the same.
SHARE YOUR STORY
The stigma only exists if we all stay in the shadows. 20% of us live with mental health conditions and everyone is going through something, so there's nothing to be ashamed of. Whether you share publicly or a with few loved ones, you'll build yourself a supportive community and inspire others to do the same.
If 20,000 of us share our stories in 2019, we can end the stigma by 2020.
