April 14 @ 11:45 am
I am a pre-social work major at Brookdale, current secretary of the Psychology and Human Services Club, member of the Cheer and Dance Team, and an elite gymnast. I also struggle with PTSD, depression, addiction, and an eating disorder. No one ever talked to me about mental health growing up. I was pegged as an attention-seeking problem child early on, and for year after, that stigma surrounding mental health kept me stuck. Even after years of therapy and treatment, I still struggle. I am slowly learning to be kind to myself, and I am sure I will be on this journey for a long time.
Please join the Psychology and Human Services Club as we are hoping to share my story and embracing my small successes will empower others to do the same.
Join us in Fort Hancock, Room 208, in the Student Life Center or
