STORYTIME: "MY PRISON EXPERIENCE & PTSD" #mentalhealth #screwstigmaproject



Speaker: Afton (@aftonlynnruthless)
Speaking about her experience dealing with prison and the aftermath.

Screw Stigma & the #screwstigmaproject is a group of advocates spreading mental health awareness and overall wellbeing.
Mental health over the years has become a more comfortable thing to talk about but it is still widely misunderstood and made to be an invalid disease. The mental illness rate has skyrocketed and the ages of people committing suicide is getting younger and younger everyday.
