Official Finding Help Through The Darkness


Staff member


Every year more and more people face the harsh reality of living with mental illness. Whether caused by a traumatic event, a medical condition, or even stressors in life that have pushed you too far, the struggle is all too real and often unseen. Studies have shown that 1 in 5 adults will experience a serious mental health condition in their lifetime, whether it be depression, anxiety, PTSD, or one of the many other mental health issues. The biggest challenge in dealing with these issues is the stigma that having these conditions makes you weak, I can promise you it doesn’t. As someone who has both dealt with and learned to handle mental illness, I can assure you there are constructive ways to manage it.

The signs of mental illness can often be hard to spot as many of the symptoms will affect people differently. Even after a medical diagnosis has been made, treatment can still be challenging as people are often embarrassed or unsure who to talk to regarding their condition. As I have said, having mental health issues does not make you weak. Asking for help takes far more strength than most people realize. Thankfully, there are many ways to get that help that weren’t around even a few years ago. Counseling, support groups, medications, and self-help plans are just a few of the options readily available to anyone seeking help.

If you take away nothing else from this post, remember this, you are not alone in this fight. There are always people ready and willing to help you through the darkness. If you need someone to talk to, you can always reach out to me or any of the staff members both here and on the Discord server. If you want to speak to someone about getting yourself a counselor or more professional medical help, I have included a few of the helplines below that you can call or text to get help.
