Hey All!

I am excited to share with you that I am a participating hiker in the #hikeOctober Campaign with the Hike For Mental Health nonprofit organization!

I, like many others, have faced obstacles regarding mental health. I have personally battled Depressive episodes and Anxiety in addition to witnessing mental illness impact those that I love. Grappling through the highs and lows of mental illness can leave one feeling isolated and detached. Having been there myself, it was a struggle to find the motivation to pull myself out. When I discovered my passion for hiking and the outdoors I found an outlet. On the trail, I can carry the weight in my pack rather than in my head. Not only this, but hiking has given me the opportinity to be apart of a comminuty full of so many stories and individuals that want to share them. Thank you for helping me not feel alone. 

I want to share this resource and for people to feel empowered in the outdoors. Let's walk together to raise awareness of the challenges faced with mental illness, fund mental health research and wilderness convervation efforts!

I look forward to sharing more of my story and learning about others'! With every mile is a step towards ending the stigmas of mental illness.

UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not” - The Loraz, Dr.Seuss
