Gave my second TEDx talk at TEDx Crescenta Valley High School. My talk was called: “How to Share You Have Mental Illness (and How to Listen).” The room had 100 people and my message carried well. Some of my main points were that mental illness is not something to be ashamed of and there are guidelines on how to share you have mental illness to minimize stigmatizing reactions. Conversely, if you are the recipient of the information, be empathetic, listen, and disclose similar experiences. The talk should be posted on YouTube in a few weeks 😊 Stigma smash!
