My name’s Vanessa. I have major depressive disorder and 18 years ago I survived a suicide attempt. I’m. Here. (!!!) I’m Living Proof — struggles with mental health, past traumas– they don’t have to define You. They don’t have to end You.
I want to tell my story because I believe it’s important to talk about these issues and battle the stigma against speaking up about mental health and suicide awareness.
Now as a crisis counselor I try to help others by letting them tell their stories in a safe place, in the hopes that by exploring their feelings they can find the strength to help themselves.
I’m here to try and Break the Stigma against Mental Health Issues. If you or someone you know is experiencing depression or thoughts of suicide please check out the links in my “Get Help Now” page.
Thanks for visiting and keep fighting!
