"There needs to be more conversation about Mental Health because many people don't want to talks about it...But there are people who want to help and I am one of those people"
"Some of the most comforting words in the universe are ‘me too.’ That moment when you find out that your struggle is also someone else’s struggle, that you’re not alone, and that others have been down the same road."
