I am not a mental health care professional (yet). My experience is from my personal struggles with severe OCD, depression, and social anxiety and my firsthand encounters with others struggling with mental illness. All resources provided on this website and the Inspiration to Overcome social media accounts are intended as supplements to professional treatment by a experienced psychologist or therapist and qualified psychiatrist or medical doctor. If you are struggling remember: your life is not over, you are strong, and you can get better. If this is an emergency, or you or someone you know is at risk of committing suicide, please call your local authorities (911), contact a mental health professional, or call and talk to someone at 1-800-SUICIDE (784-2433) as soon as possible.
