I have been on the road to further my education so I can be a Licensed marriage and family counselor for youth and adolescents. This looks at the environment and relationships within the person's life to help recovery and acceptance. I went through severe depression and anxiety as a child starting around 11 years old. I did not seek help until I was closer to 17 years old. I understand and can relate to children suffering from mental illness. I pledge to be the voice of children who are suffering from mental illness.
