Hey guys, I’m back! It’s been a crazy year and my mental health has not been healthy. But I’m back!!!
Recently I teamed up with an organization called Conquer the Silence. They’re a nonprofit that aims to bridge the gap between those affected by mental illness and their loved ones. That’s just about everything I try to stand for, so of course I signed up. I currently help by posting occasionally on some of their social media accounts, heading their blog, giving general and specific advice on how to improve the organization, and other random things.
I am doing something rather exciting with their blog. I have this story I’ve been working on on and off for a couple years. It’s called Empathy Girl. I came up with the idea by brainstorming what it would look like if depression had a physical form and we could see the combat. That was the original idea, anyway. It’s changed, just a bit. Aaaand I’m writing that story as a series of short stories on the Conquer the Silence blog!
The first issue is currently available on Wattpad. The second one is now up on their blog and you can find it here. Make sure to give it a like if you read it! We haven’t figured out how to make stats work on that blog, so we have no other way of knowing if posts are even being seen. I don’t even know how. to connect my account. Somehow I did it on mobile but it won’t work on my computer.
Anyway, I’d love to see you following us on social media. And if you’d like to volunteer, reach out!!! We need lots more help.
