“Getting the right help at the right time is the key to the mental health wellness…starting my Canadian life as an immigrant, when I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety disorders however, it was very hard to do so. I was faced with many obstacles and stigma that typically challenges the patients of mental disorders, and those obstacles sadly included members from my own community. My recovering journey made me realize the importance of cultural-appropriate mental health care system and the support for the most vulnerable population to mental disorders: youth. It was a long journey of recovery, where sometimes I resulted into using negative coping mechanisms like excessive Internet usage and harmful relationships. But by not giving up, I am now surrounded by positive support systems that have encouraged me to be an advocate of helping youth experiencing mental health challenges. I now cherish, care, and support myself to do the same to others.”
