“I pledge my commitment to the Blog for Mental Health 2014 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.”
Hi my name is Amy Gamble and I am a former Olympic Athlete who lives with Bipolar Disorder. I was diagnosed with a mental illness 15 years ago and have struggled my way to recovery through many trials and tribulations. I decided to start blogging because I wanted to contribute to the dialogue about mental illness. I wanted to help raise awareness with the hope that one more voice can help eliminate Stigma. I am excited to add my blog “Shedding Light on Mental Illness” to the many blogs out there doing good stuff.
I decided to join the pledge for the Blog for Mental Health 2014 Project because I know when we join together our voices are much louder. It’s a great cause and it is one that I completely support.
