As a teen, Michelle was told that getting professional help for her mental illnesses
would be a stain on her “permanent record”
that would prevent her from getting into a prestigious college or worse (in her parents’ minds) from finding a husband.

Michelle’s story is one of stigma, unnecessary pain and ultimate recovery.
And who better to advocate for mental health than someone who has had to fight so hard to have her own diagnosed and treated?
