    Oh My Thoughts – Mental Health in the Workplace

    I've written and re-written this post a bunch of times. Sometimes I sit here and I wonder, what can I say here? I know that this is my blog, and I can say what I want to. But sometimes I worry that certain people, if they come across a post, will get the wrong idea. The wrong opinion.

    Ending The Stigma: Bell Let’s Talk

    In Canada every year, Bell host's a "Bell Let's Talk" day to help bring awareness to mental health. For every text message sent by a Bell user, every phone call made by a Bell user, every #BellLetsTalk tweet, every use of the Snapchat or Facebook filters, and every view of their video, they donate $0.05.

    Bell Let’s Talk – End the Stigma

    I used to be afraid to talk about my mental illness. I'm not anymore. I don't know if it's that I've grown stronger as I got older, but I know now that you need to share your story. You need to be able to open up, and let anyone - everyone - know that they're not alone.
