Thank you for checking out our blog! My name is Natasha and I am one of the two bloggers that you'll hear from consistently.
This first post is going to be about something really important in order for this to remain a place of healing and love- R E S P E C T. Throughout this blog, there will be opportunities for dialogue and for individuals to write about their own journey. Whether someone is sharing anonymously or not, it is imperative that we share our comments and experiences in a meaningful and respectful manner. You'll be able to comment on our posts and add your own posts under the tab Your Voices. Additionally, you'll be able to comment on each others posts. We value belonging to a supportive community, so let's show each other what it means to be heard and respected. Let's be real- talking about mental health can be hard and painful, so nobody got time for bullies and negativity. Remember, this is a safe space.
Now that that's out of the way, we are so excited to be starting this journey with each of you. How cool is this? We get to be human, together, unapologetically. How often does that happen? This blog is a place where helping professionals can go to read, relate, process, reflect, share, cry, scream, laugh, feel all the feels. This is a place where we can go to process the everyday demands of work, how it impacts our mental health, and vice versa. This blog is going to be open, honest, and raw. We hope each of you can learn something from it- whether it be about yourself or the world around you.
We feel incredibly grateful for each of you and your willingness to begin this journey with us. Thank you a million times over.
We would love it if you left us a line in the comments :)
