Join me for National suicide prevention week!
Hey book babes,
I've joined forces with Eva Pohler and a few other author buds to talk to you about Suicide Prevention & Mental Health Awareness. If you've ever struggled with depression or anxiety or any other mental health disorders, you know it isn't something you can just flip a switch and make it go away. It takes real work and ongoing attention to maintain mental health but coping skills aren't inherent. They're learned through therapy and support that all starts with campaigns for awareness just like this one. I hope you'll join us by being open to the discussion of mental health, removing the stigma, and offering support for those who need it.
