Hello my awesome SoCal friends! :D I have some very exciting news for you all. Saddleback College's Psychology & Psi Beta Club is hosting its annual Mental Health Awareness Week from November 26th-29th. In case you are unaware, Saddleback College is a community college located in Mission Viejo, Orange County, California. We have some extremely special events and speakers including names you may recognize (besides myself) such as Jonah Mowry (gay bullied youth victim who was first noticed on youtube through his famous flashcard "Whats goin on.." video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdkNn3Ei-Lg ), Anna & Victoria Mendez (founders of the Cool 2 Be Kind Club http://cool2bekind.org ), and Tanya Brown (sister of Nicole Brown Simpson, from the OJ Simpson murder trial).

Hiding Emotion
hiding my heart,

with an others love

affection returned,

with a push or a shove

Claiming immunity,
to care or to cry
giving up on myself,

but still wanting to try
Hurting another,

to muffle my pain

faking a smile,
mirage in the rain


Distaste for myself,

my mental disease
this merciless battle,

a change without ease 

repeating the words
I know aren't true,
redundantly claiming
that I don't love you

Faith Tested is Endurance.
Let's rewind 15, nearly 16, years. At that point in time, I was Lily Berger, age 8. I was short, with blonde hair and bright green eyes...and I was hyper beyond all means. I had already become the school outcast, lost friends, irritated adults, and exasperated my parents. I quickly realised that I needed desperately to calm myself down in any way possible. I had noticed that when I didn't eat lunch, or didn't have a full meal, I would start to drag in energy after awhile. It made me less of an annoyance, less "obnoxious," as I was often described. And so it began. Throw away a juice box here, a sandwich there.
By age 12, I had extremely low self-esteem, due to a childhood of frequent physical, verbal and emotional abuse. My view of what it meant to be Christian was also warped by my staunchly atheist upbringing. Although my parents provided my sister and me with a constant whirlwind of extracurricular opportunities that their parents were never able to afford, they also expected perfec

Mental Health Awareness

For the awareness spreading of mental health issues. This group is less for expression and more for awareness and education, we only accept work which dispells myths, spreads facts and educates on the topic of mental health and mental illness. As such we perfer that in all submission there are facts about a mentsl health issue contained either within the peice or in the artists comments, we will also accept links contained within these places to resources of more information. This is not a requirement, but it is heavily encouraged

We cover all aspects of mental health from stress to psychosis, from dissociation to anxiety. You do not need to have experianced a mental health issue to join, you just need to have a want and passion to spread the truth of this topic and destroy the myths and steriothypes surrounding it

Hello all.
My grandma recently attempted to commit suicide, so I'm putting
together a get well/welcome home package that includes a big card.

My family and I would greatly appreciate it if others left some words
of encouragement for her to add to the card to show that she matters.

Details can be found in my journal here: fav.me/d9ypmcv

This attempt has left all of us devastated, but we are pushing ahead
and surrounding her with all of the love and support that she needs.

Thank you for taking the time to read this

I hope I can belong here.
I still am in the darkness. Trying to find my way out.
I know that sound's dramatic and over the top but it's true. 
I have MPD, Major Depression, insomnia  and really bad anxiety.
I hate asking for help. But I don't want to be alone....
Please don't judge me. :icondepressedplz:
I just need a friend....or someone to talk to.. 
I'm sorry for randomly putting this in the comments.
