Have you heard?
I have now.
Now you need to know about this!
I’m super excited to share one of the most innovative communities there is for people with Mental health. The only way to stop discrimination is to get on board and use your voice and not be ashamed to have mental health issues.
WE ALL HAVE MENTAL HEALTH SO WE ALL NEED TO LOOK AFTER OURS.
CHECK OUT SickNotWeak
I’ve decided to get more involved and volunteer.
What does it mean to be a volunteer at #SickNotWeak? It means sharing a part of yourself to help others, it means starting conversations we didn’t have even twenty years ago, and it means making a commitment to change. There is no singular way to help an organization like ours – our volunteers have diverse skills sets, life experience, and quite often different diagnoses.
We welcome both sufferers and supporters on our team.Something everyone at #SickNotWeak has asked themselves: “If I am feeling broken, how can I fix anyone else?” Simply put, you can’t. Our job at #SickNotWeak is not to “fix” anyone. We are not doctors; we are friends. Even if we just co-exist as broken-but-brave pieces of ourselves, that is enough. Feeling a sense of camaraderie is enough. Telling just one person that you are sick, not weak, is enough. You are enough.
