Who am I? A non-credentialed, non-psychologically-trained woman, who is yet well-versed in the mental health life experience.
I seek to inform the unacquainted with some key facts that face those who have been determined within a “mental” category.
The goal is to show that no matter the label given, no one’s experience is the same, nor are the causes nor the solutions. Speaking as a layman in the field, I will discuss how society can too easily discredit, misjudge, mistreat, and miscategorize people. And why I hid my labels for most of my life. And why I felt the need to speak about it, now.
