Social Justice / feminist
I started mental health advocacy work in 2012, it has been 5 years since. While different advocacy efforts have its own unique challenges, there are some similarities.
Here are some lessons I learned from mental health advocacy that I have encountered with women's rights.
The same people you use your voice for are the first to object
Mistake your kindness for weakness
Underestimate the challenges of recovery, invalidating the hard work
Being a voice for others, it's also about your personal evolvement
