I have been so nervous to share this intimate interview I had with the incredible team at Timberline Knolls, because I get SO vulnerable talking about my experience tackling some really hard depression and PTSD in treatment.
There is SUCH a stigma around depression, mental health, and healing…but I am kinda over it. The people who sit back judging are not the people I want to be BFF with anyway!
The reality is, 1 in 6 people will struggle with depression at some point in their lives. I’m not a math genius…but that is about how many people I share an elevator with every day in my building.
Until we start talking about healing, seeking it out, and encouraging others to do the same, our world will continue to feel overwhelming to sooo many people we love.
If you or someone you know is struggling with depression, mood disorders, eating disorders, or other difficult emotional trauma or pain, I hope you consider Timberline Knolls. Two INCREDIBLE people, Scott and Theresa Beck sponsored me to get the healing I so desperately needed, and when I had the choice of ANY treatment facility, I chose TK.
Check out this heartfelt interview to hear my story, and please share yours with me on social media, email, or in the comments below.
If you are having suicidal thoughts, please call 911 ASAP. You MATTER. Your life MATTERS…and I love you!!
