Welcome to courageously.u! Thank you so, so much for stopping by. Courageously.u was created to bring awareness to mental health, to break the stigma surrounding mental health, and to let you know that you are not alone. It is a safe place to tell your story and hear other stories like yours. It a platform for change. A place to come for education, resources, and normalization of everyday life struggles.
My passion for mental health and my desire to normalize life is real! Becoming a counselor opened my eyes to what people struggle with behind closed doors. It helped make me aware that social media is not always what you see. The biggest lightbulb moment for me was when I realized how many people suffer alone. I am a firm believer that no one should struggle alone with mental health because there is a stigma surrounding it. No one should be ashamed to say, “Hey, I am struggling today/this week/this month/this year.”
Not only have I heard the stories, I have lived with mental health myself. I know what it feels like to struggle alone and be afraid to share your story. I will share my personal struggles with mental health and share the tips and tricks that have helped me along the way.
I am beyond excited to launch courageously.u as a platform for change, to hear your stories, and help bring awareness to mental health.
