Mental Health Advocate and Mother

A woman sits in a swinging tree holding a laptop open on a mental health care petition.

As a 28 year old mother of 2, who’s father took his life when I was just 10 years old, & now struggles daily to fight the constant battle with her brain, quality healthcare for mental health seems so hard to find. Health insurance, oftentimes, doesn’t cover treatment which leaves the already struggling patient to make the decision between forking out hundreds of $$$ they don’t have just to get help or continue struggling silently.
