Mental illness is real! Often going undiagnosed and untreated until something happens. I remember those days of uncertainty. I felt as if the entire weight of the cosmos was upon my fragile shoulders. Reflecting back on my young years when depression seemed as the only drug of the day - my life could have ended in tragedy.
I shared my journey through the jungles of depression with Yvette Montoya for HipLatina. We touched on so many aspects of my life and how all these trials and challenges gave way to our company. Read all about it.
That's why at Majestic Bliss Soaps we dedicate part of our time, proceeds and products to supporting organizations that make things a whole lot better. Last week I had the honor of participating at this years Mental Health Awareness Month organized by NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). They offer wonderful resources and services that help people overcome the many challenges of life.
