Throughout college I avoided any psychology classes because I did not want to read about myself in a book. Then, during my second semester of graduate school I felt compelled to take a class on Global Mental Health. It was challenging, both academically and personally, but it was eye-opening.
Newsflash: I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH A MENTAL ILLNESS. SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE ONE. WE JUST DON’T TALK ABOUT IT.
