Blog for Mental Health 2013

1.) Take the pledge by copying and pasting the following into a post featuring “Blog for Mental Health 2013″.

I pledge my commitment to the Blog For Mental Health 2013 Project
I will blog about mental health topics not only for myself, but for others. 
By displaying this badge, I show my pride, dedication, and acceptance
for mental health.  I use this to promote mental 
health education in the
struggle to erase stigma.

2.) Link back to the person who pledged you.
You can consider this an open pledge, so feel free to link to A Canvas Of The Minds and this post!
3.) Write a short biography of your mental health, and what this means to you. 

I have suffered for over 24 years with Major Depressive Disorder and now my 16 year old daughter is suffering from it too. The stigma needs to stop and needs to stop today.  Mental Health awareness has become a quest of mine.  Mental Illness is an illness and there is nothing to be ashamed of.  Seek help and you need to know that you are not alone.

4.) Pledge five others, and be sure to let them know!
I am pledging that all of my followers and readers who have been with me from the beginning and also the new ones who are much appreciated because without your support I would not be as open and honest with my mental illness, please take the pledge today to promote mental health awareness and stop the stigma now!  If you don't feel comfortable making the pledge at least display the picture at the top of this post in your blog sidebar.  It will show that we are united as one in spreading the fact that mental illness is indeed an illness and that no needs to feel ashamed to ask for help. 
5.) And, as something novel for 2013, Lulu and I ask one more thing of you.
As you may have noticed, Canvas does not keep an official blogroll, outside of links to our authors’ personal blogs.  For something new and special to introduce Blog For Mental Health 2013, and really build a sense of community — and show everyone how many of us there are, and how strong we are, coming together — we are launching a Blog For Mental Health 2013 Official Blogroll!  So, in addition to linking back to the person who pledged you, please include the link to this original post in your piece.  As this gets passed along, link back or click here and leave a comment containing the link to your pledge, and we will put you on our Blog For Mental Health 2013 Official Blogroll page!  
Show the world our strength, show them our solidarity, show them what we are made of.  Take the Blog for Mental Health pledge and proudly display the badge on your blog!
And may we all have a happy, healthy 2013!

Thanks to Lulu of acanvasoftheminds.com for bringing this project to my attention!
