Lilies and Elephants is a collection of my thoughts, musings, ideas, personal impressions, and stories. I think out loud and encourage others to express themselves. I write about life and my personal journey living with a mood cycling disorder. I'm on a mission to motivate openness about and acceptance of mental health and chronic illness, to chip away at the stigma, offer support, raise awareness, and perhaps provide some inspiration along the way.
I believe one of the most effective ways to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health is to talk about it, and to have resources available for those with conditions, as well as those who have family and friends with mental health conditions. Below are some of my favorite resources. I very much encourage you to check them out.
