There is no secret that I am passionate about talking about mental health.
My journey started back in 2014 when I was diagnosed. For years I thought that I was the only one in the world who suffered from a mental health disorder. I had gone through a range of emotions trying to figure out where I “fit in” as I navigated my way through life while dealing with a mental illness. I am always amazed and intrigued when I meet and talk to other strong, brave men and women who are thriving and surviving despite their mental health disorders.
This brings me to the reason of this post.
I met a woman named Stephanie Mitchell Hughes on Instagram a few months ago. She is amazing! She is a mother, attorney, speaker, and she also lives with a mental illness. She is very passionate about helping others and spreading the word about mental health and mental illness. I want share a podcast from the American Bar Association Commission on Lawyer Assistance Programs (CoLAP) in which the talks about her mental illness and how she was able to find recovery and stability.
The link to her story is below.
Please take some time to listen to this enlightening, and inspirational account.
There are so many pearls of wisdom, and I know that you will find her story powerful.
