My Travel Story

by: Vianka Rodriguez Start Date: Sep 19, 2016 - End Date: Sep 18, 2017
I have suffered from Bipolar Disorder and severe depression for my entire life. I almose didn't even make it to 18. Now, as I just celebrated my 24th birthday, I'm happy to say that I've made it in one piece. It took a lot of work and years of building up courage to talk to anyone about it let alone get help. In my journey I learned that mental illness is something that affects millions of people but is often overlooked due to the social stigmas surrounding it. I'm on a mission to to put the tabboo of mental illness on blast. I want the world to know that mental illness is not only common, but that there are tons of resources to find help. I want people to know that there is hope and that they shouldn't be afraid or ashamed to care for themselves and ask for help. There is hope. We are not alone.
