Mental Illness Awareness at brienblatt.com
One of my goals is to provide useful information to other people about mental illness.
This is so people who are suffering from mental illness know that they aren’t alone. And for those who aren’t — maybe you will learn something about what people who have these things are going through and how devastating – or even terrifying – it can be.
It’s going to take some time to build up a large resource, but here are some links.
A lot of this information is based on my personal experiences.
