Mental Illness Awareness
Mental Illness – Do You Know? was created to increase the mental illness awareness, based on personal experiences I’ve had with loved ones who have lived with the debilitating affects of mental illness.
My name is Anita Jackson and I became a mental health advocate in 2014, based in Hamilton, Ontario.
Most people have acquired the knowledge of mental illness awareness through articles written by doctors and other medical professionals, who have not lived with mental illness or experienced the affects through a loved one.
This website will include articles related to mental illness, but will be hand chosen, to share with you, and written by those who have experienced mental illness first hand. Topics will include agoraphobia, anxiety, bipolar, depression, eating disorders, OCD, PTSD, personality disorders, schizophrenia and more.
