Mental Health - @kimmyj_p

"My name is Kim and I am proud to be wearing this AWARE necklace signifying mental health awareness and the struggles I have dealt with throughout my life. For more than half of my life I have lived with anorexia, bipolar and anxiety. I was first diagnosed with anorexia at age 14 and the subsequent diagnoses came not long after. I have spent the last 15 years in and out of hospitals and clinics, I don’t even know how many admissions there have been. However I hold onto hope that one day things will get better, one day I’ll be free from this torment in my mind. Mental illness is not a fun time for anyone but to raise awareness around the topic, I believe is so important. This necklace signifies my struggle, but it also signifies a step towards mental health awareness and helping people to understand what really lies beneath. Thank you AWARE causes for inviting me to be a part of this movement." @kimmyj_p
