Fantastic to see this tweet in Dutch from a recipient of one of my #compulsivecharcoal 1 minute free drawings given away on Tube tonight . I draw to stop my #SkinPicking disorder and reduce #anxiety. If you receive a drawing or postcard please share it! Check out the link in my bio from @bbcnews ! Art is my tool for recovery and I give my drawings away as #actsofkindness for others everyday, to raise awareness and reduce stigma for mental illness and this disorder. I have created my free drawings on the tube & Overground in London, the New York Subway System, California’s Amtrak, San Francisco trams, BART and MUNI, and Singapore's public transport system, so far I have given away in excess of 16,000 free drawings. As seen on @bbcnews @huffingtonpost @mashable
Compulsive Skin Picking also known as Dermatillomania or Excoriation, is a complex physical and mental disorder, part of a group known as body-focused repetitive behaviors (#BFRBs), self-grooming in which individuals pull, pick, scrape, or bite their own hair, skin, or nails, resulting in damage to the body. Drawing helps shift the tension of the disorder and refocus my hands.

When I was 4 years old, my parents divorced and I moved in with my mom. She was a brilliant doctor, but was never very social. We never had dinner together or went on family vacations. She had migraines, was hospitalized frequently and cleaned her home every day. I felt lonely living with her. When I was 18, I got married and left home. A few months later, I left Russia and moved to the U.S. with my husband. When I got pregnant and my husband left me, my mother promised that she would come to the U.S. to help me with my baby. When my son was born, she told me to figure it out on my own. After that, she stopped answering her phone. In 2007, I came to see her with my new husband and son, but she did not open her door. In 2008, we caught her leaving her home and she let us in. There was no bed, chairs or food in the fridge. She had fancy wallpaper and beautiful paintings, but her apartment was empty, immaculately clean, dark and eerie. My mom wanted nothing to do with us. When we came back to the U.S., she disconnected her phone line permanently and we never spoke again. She was totally unreachable.
I had a vivid dream in April that I went to Russia to see my mom but couldn't get in and left feeling devastated. A week later, I found out that my mom died. I sat on the ground frozen for hours. My husband had to take time off to care for our four young children because I couldn't. My life lost its meaning. However, her door that I despised was finally open! I experienced a powerful existential crisis. At the funeral, I told my mom that I want to remember the day she brought me home from the hospital and gazed at me with motherly love.
I went to see a medium, she said my mom was waiting for me and that although she couldn't let me in, she loved me. Her message to me was to not judge her harshly because she could not connect with anyone and one of her biggest joys was having me. I am now pursuing a graduate degree in counseling and I realize that my mom struggled with a number of mental illnesses. I found out from her brother that she was abused by her stepfather; trauma most likely caused her mental illness. My goal in life is to overcome fears... (cont in comment)

In my difficult and angry days, I used to get involved in arguments with other Mental Health pages etc about the right and wrong.

As I have built self worth, I really do want to support people who do want to speak up, and it is not a case of "just speak up"

If you ask a lot of people like me, it took such a long time and encouragement from some good people who had been there before I started to speak up and even then I was angry.

I am no better than others with Mental Illness issues, I am an equal and I hope that all of us act that way.

People can be blinded sometimes by pages with high numbers and qualifications etc, however we are all experts in our own condition and no one can tell us differently.

I would love more
SUPPORT
EMPATHY
COMPASSION

The more we encourage others to speak up, the greater voice we have.

It's not just about me, its about my peers and fellow sufferers, my page is for me and for others.

Remember .... No I in TEAM

There is a huge amount of stigma and shaming around medication for Mental Illness.

I have been against them for most of my life as I did not want to put some strange chemicals in my body that might harm other parts of my body.

In January this year my Therapist suggested that I could not concentrate enough to do proper therapy and that I take medication to calm my brain so that I could do some therapy.

I accepted her advice and have now been on medication for PTSD since January of this year.

I am in a better place for taking them and I do have some not nice side affects as well.

In a way I understand why there is mocking of people taking medication, maybe it is because people perceive them as weak?

Interestingly people take tablets for headache and who shames them? I have to say that mental illness is a bit harder to manage then a headache
If people can take tablets for minor physical ailments, surely it is acceptable for us to take medication to help us?

"Piglet?" said Pooh. "Yes Pooh?" said Piglet. "Do you ever have days when everything feels... Not Very Okay At All? And sometimes you don't even know why you feel Not Very Okay At All, you just know that you do." Piglet nodded his head sagely. "Oh yes," said Piglet. "I definitely have those days." "Really?" said Pooh in surprise. "I would never have thought that. You always seem so happy and like you have got everything in life all sorted out." "Ah," said Piglet. "Well here's the thing. There are two things that you need to know, Pooh. The first thing is that even those pigs, and bears, and people, who seem to have got everything in life all sorted out... they probably haven't. Actually, everyone has days when they feel Not Very Okay At All. Some people are just better at hiding it than others. "And the second thing you need to know... is that it's okay to feel Not Very Okay At All. It can be quite normal, in fact. And all you need to do, on those days when you feel Not Very Okay At All, is come and find me, and tell me. Don't ever feel like you have to hide the fact you're feeling Not Very Okay At All. Always come and tell me. Because I will always be there." #mentalhealthawarenessweek

🎭 It’s true. This fall we’re partnering with our friends @Brunchtheatre a millennial and gen-z theatre company to present an evening of original works centered around mental health.

How do we explore #selfcare as a reality, and not a trend? We are looking for original 10-minute plays that explore how to talk about mental health in our current society. Wanna take a bite? DM us to receive the full prompt.

#Truthbomb: YOU are the one you’ve been waiting for ✨❤️✨!
. .

Look, I love princess stories just as much as the next gal but Disney really screwed a bunch of us over … making us believe in magic, a stud coming to save us on a white horses, and frogs turning into princes and all that shit 💩 💩 💩 . . .
.
.

And now, as grown ass women, we have the unfortunate task of unpacking all of that crap we’ve been fed our whole lives. So here we are … standing by ourselves, wondering how the hell we got here and what to do we do now 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏿‍♀️ ?? .
.
.

I want to challenge you that you don’t need to do a damn thing. Nothing. Nada. .
.

That #YouArePerfect just the way you are! You don’t need a man, woman, or anyone to rescue you or to save you ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜!
.
.

You can save your own damn self. For real. ✨❤️✨

I woke up this morning and scrolled through my Instagram feed while still laying in bed. Perhaps because I wasn't fully awake and grounded yet, some old mental chatter came in - a comparison narrative.
.
Oh, this person spent their weekend at a professional conference. Why don't you go to something like that, Sara? This person wrote a book. You should really write one too. This person is "getting out there" and doing XYZ, why aren't you doing that?
.
This mental story says everyone else is doing the "right" or "better" things than I am and that they're "getting ahead." It leaves me feeling anxious and ashamed.
.
But, what’s true?
.
As has been said many times, others are sharing their highlight reel. I not seeing the whole picture of someone else's life. They have ups and downs just like me.
.
My brain also always downplays my own "highlights" - part of that other mental programming of "not good enough" many (maybe all?) of us have.
.
And the highlight reel is often fake. I know because I've done it - shared something that looks good on the outside, while my actual lived experience of it felt terrible.
.
And this leads me to my main point. The thing is that I know I am smart and driven and can, of course, get myself to do all the things in others highlight reels my mind is telling me I "should" do. I can go ahead and force myself to do these things, telling myself I need to do them. But then where will I be?
.
It won't be real. I will have gone out and created something based on my mind telling me I should do it. It won't be from a genuine desire. And I've been there way too many times in my past to do this again. This leads to having your life look buttoned-up on the outside and a sense of security that you're doing the "right" things, but at the end of the day, I'll be miserable.
.
And there's only so long someone can stay in a miserable place. So to go down this road is building a house of cards. The cards will fall and I'll be back to where I am now.
.
Right now I have the opportunity to take the genuine path. To listen to no one but myself. To honor whatever genuine desires to do or not do something are arising. #halfthestory @mindbodygreen @sarayoungwang

Just finished a two day course with @mhfaengland to become a Mental Health First Aider. While it might have been one of the more intense start to a weeks that I’ve had recently, I’m leaving feeling super inspired to help people be as mentally fit as they can be 🤸‍♀️

Just as we all have physical health, we all have mental health too, and taking care of it shouldn’t be reserved for those times when you’re struggling with something. Life is busy, emotional and can be tough at times - it’s important to make time to do those things that are good for your soul, even (or especially) at the times when it seems most difficult 🙌

This photo is entirely unrelated, although think we can all agree that a trip back to Canggu would be EXCELLENT for my mental health 😂

Sun Rise ....
-
-
-
One of the hardest things we may face and come across in life, is staying focus and goal minded,While trying to surpass the trials and turbulence that come along the way....
-
-
-
For that reason I turn to nature .... Watching the sunrise assures me that there's a brighter day coming before me.
The sound of the ocean reminds me ... That this too shall pass.. While the clouds clear up the sky reminding me,new doors will open. -
-
-
Its very hard to find strength within yourself, when you feel all the walls around you closing in. You loose yourself to that darkness. To then question your purpose in life... Unfortunately, depression is real it hurts our inner soul. It takes away the inner strength. It takes away the self esteem, and it takes away the purpose of life.
-
-
-
Take the time to listen to that someone that is not their usual them. Sometimes, although they are smiling on the outside, they are dying in the inside. -
-
-
To those that feel alone trust and belief you are not. Focus on self, find a peaceful place where you can remind yourself that you will be ok! It takes practice but is all worth it. -

💚Sometimes we all need to remember to take time for OURSELVES
.
💚Life can be manic at times & between jobs, children, family & partners we can be absolutely drained
.
💚We also forget to give ourselves permission to do things we enjoy!
.
💚For me, I always need to plan my week to ensure I fit in things that keep me sane - yoga, meditation & running all work for me as well as getting stuck into a good book.
.
💚What keeps you going? Comment below if you have any hobbies that keep you sane!

as much as i love being busy, nothing beats taking the night off and having a good chat with a good people. I figure that my work will be there for me tomorrow, my statements and spreadsheets can wait, but the oppurtunity to visit with friends isnt always going to be there. Ive had this mantra lately of "you are exactly where you need to be right in this moment, and you are enough as you are" playing in my head on a loop that sometimes gets muffled over worries of not being good enough, or not being on top of my work 24/7 and you know sometimes you just have to chill out and be thankful for where you are. i have immense gratitude for my villiage of people and I dont want to be in a position where i take that for granted, ever. So for now, take time to stop and remind loved ones that you love them and appreciate them, and yourself too. you are enough as you are, and you will always be. 🖤🖤🖤

Perspective is everything. Opportunity provides a choice, so take the path of the optimist. Embrace the power of a Postive Mental Attitude at all costs.

My #compulsivecharcoal 1 minute free drawing given to a passenger on Overground line. I draw to stop my #SkinPicking disorder and reduce #anxiety. If you receive a drawing or postcard please share it! Check out the link in my bio from @bbcnews ! Art is my tool for recovery and I give my drawings away as #actsofkindness for others everyday, to raise awareness and reduce stigma for mental illness and this disorder. I have created my free drawings on the tube & Overground in London, the New York Subway System, California’s Amtrak, San Francisco trams, BART and MUNI, and Singapore's public transport system, so far I have given away in excess of 16,000 free drawings. As seen on @bbcnews @huffingtonpost @mashable
Compulsive Skin Picking also known as Dermatillomania or Excoriation, is a complex physical and mental disorder, part of a group known as body-focused repetitive behaviors (#BFRBs), self-grooming in which individuals pull, pick, scrape, or bite their own hair, skin, or nails, resulting in damage to the body. Drawing helps shift the tension of the disorder and refocus my hands.

"I'm a #movement by myself, but I'm a fource when we're together!" #neyo
Yesterday I threw my first event. I am so proud. It was exciting and scary, and it makes me fearless! I showed up for myself and for what I believe in, my passion. Thank you for these amazing clients, turned friends, who show up and support. We are all in this together & yesterday, we all vowed to become part of solution & not the problem. So, I encourage you to #PedalOn #PedalOnGameStrong #livingthedream #trusttheprocess 🐘👏🌻🚲🚲🚲 #LPD @milanicosmetics #afsp #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawarenessweek

Mental Malady:
Dear Diary, Why so blue? That big black dog finally caught up with you. Not just one but the whole damn pack and you're not quite sure how to find your way back. This isn't for pity, followers or responses of distaste but instead a hope that this darkness doesn't go to waste. "Such a tragedy!", "What happened?", "Why them?" and "Why now?" ... well to follow are my 13 reasons how. This isn't to blame, get likes or to bore because statistically this is something you shouldn't ignore. In Australia suicide is deaths leading cause between those aged 15 to 44. So maybe the following may help you, or give a different perspective to someone you know, and hopefully help support others not to make the decision to go. @elisabethlorn ~ Friendly Reminder: Awareness is one challenge, removing the stigma is another. Any direct, or indirect, negativity means you, yes you, are part of the problem. Stop. Think. Be part of the solution ~
