Thanks for sharing that Luz and Fallyn. It means a lot to know that there are others like me, who stumbled through high school because of their mental health and fell behind despite being smart and capable. I spent 6 years in high school because of my mental health, hospitalizations, truancy, drug use, suicide attempts, and family issues. I changed schools like 12 times or something crazy like that. And some how, I made it through and am now flourishing in college!
We are incredible survivors, guys. We were given so many chances to give up, had so many reasons to stop trying… and yet, here we are, living our lives and killing it despite all the shit that kept us down for years.
TurningPointCT.org was developed by young people in Connecticut who are in recovery from mental health and substance use issues. We know what it’s like to feel alone, stressed, worried, sad, and angry. We’ve lived through the ups and downs of self-harm, drugs and alcohol, and the struggle to find help.
