In 2003, I was formally diagnosed with bipolar and anxiety disorders after being committed to a psychiatric hospital. After what I call my “four-year epic battle with mental illness,” I started volunteering with a national mental health charity. It was there that I first told my story in front of a crowd of people. It was terrifying -- but I caught the speaking bug.

Over the next decade, I honed my speaking, writing, and advocacy skills. And today, I'm an award-winning writer, mental health activist, as well as a speaker and educator. I write for Bipolar Magazine and PsychCentral.com, host a premiere mental health podcast, and have been featured in many other outlets. I'm proud of what I have accomplished and want to keep doing what I'm doing -- and more.

But, to do so, I need your help.

My fans are the greatest people I know. Without them, I never would have won a single award or been able to publish popular articles like Mental Illness is an Asshole, Anxiety Says Everyone Hates Me, or What I Wish the World Knew About Bipolar Disorder. I love all the people who have supported me and I want to do so much more.

The downside to being a popular advocate is that more and more people request my help. I've reached a level where I can't just write something and publish it quickly or use my telephone to record a quick video. Quality & professionalism matter. In a typical week, I answer more than 50 e-mails. I run an online Facebook community,The Positive Depression/Bipolar Happy Place. I volunteer to speak and advocate often.

I want to continue this journey and I want to keep offering my content for free, but I'm stretched really thin.

I hope you will partner with me so I may continue to do what I do. With your help, I will keep writing, advocating, and producing educational content surrounding mental health issues.
