Student blogger shares from her own experiences and what she has found to be effective through extensive research.
Since I was 11 years old, I have struggled with mental health; I was bullied to the point where I had to move schools. I went through mental health and social problems all throughout middle and high school, but I did not let anything hold me back. I did not let fear stop me from succeeding in life. I am now 20 and about to graduate with bachelor’s in psychology, and I can tell you that using your resources is helpful. As I have gotten older, I have found ways to use my resources and gained the strength to fight against the stigma of mental health. May is mental health awareness month, so I have found some tips on how using your resources fights the stigma.
In this heartfelt blog post, Drezdan Ginder, senior at Carroll HS, shares her thoughts and encouragement to the class of 2020.

But it is in those moments, in those situations, in staring down times when it would be easy to fall into the trap of hatred and negativity and you don’t, that you grow. And in that growth lies fulfilment, true happiness, and the method to make yourself stronger.
