Sisters in Mental Illness: How to Ask for Help

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailFacebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Sisters in Mental Illness is a new vlog series where Shaley has real conversations with brave SheLovelys who are willing to share their experience living with a mental illness. We live in a time where one in four people struggle with a mental health disorder, so these conversations are very important. We will share ALL the stories—stories of sadness, madness, shame and struggle. The more we talk about hard things like mental health, the better we can understand and walk with and alongside our Sisters in Mental Illness. We can remind each other that our stories are not over yet. Together we can smash the stigma and stereotypes of mental illness, ONE story at a time.

In the first two videos, Shaley and Abby Norman honestly answer the questions: “How Did You Know You Were Not Fine?” and “How Did You Get Help?”

Shaley has a diagnosis of Bipolar 1 and Abby lives with clinical depression. Together they share a glimpse into their messy and beautiful minds.

Email subscribers, please click through to the website to watch the video. If you are struggling with any mental health issues, we hope you will reach out and seek professional help.
