“I pledge my commitment to the Blog for Mental Health 2014 Project. I will blog about mental health topics not only for myself, but for others. By displaying this badge, I show my pride, dedication, and acceptance for mental health. I use this to promote mental health education in the struggle to erase stigma.”
Above is my pledge for the intentions of my blog for this year. You can check out my pledge from last year as well. Also, if you are a blogger that would like to make this pledge, you can check out this website and find out more about the pledge and what it means to take it.
As a part of the pledge you are encouraged to tell as much or as little as you want about your experiences with mental health.
First off, I am currently pursuing my licensure in Marriage and Family Therapy so career-wise I am immersed in mental health on a daily basis. Secondly, but not really disconnected from the first point, I have my own experiences with mental illness and so you could definitely consider me a “wounded healer” and I have been on that self-discovery journey since high school. I plan on sharing more with you as the year goes on but am a little raw right now so that is going to have to wait.
My intentions of this blog are to bring mental health resources and news to you and with that give you a few recipes to use if you are so inclined. If you have been following me at all before this point you know that I love to cook and have begun experimenting with creating my own recipes which sometimes do not produce the results I am expecting.
