To Write Love on Her Arms– My favorite and most personal non-profit organization

For those of you who may or may not of heard of it, To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) is a non-profit organization that helps young people deal with depression, anxiety, suicide and other mental illnesses. They work to inspire, encourage, inform and directly help those suffering from mental illness. The vision is hope for every person to live a happy life.

As a teen, I feel into a deep depression for years. I had never felt so much darkness around me. Everyday was a struggle to go to school, socialize and smile. I hated everything around me. I heard about TWLOHA on MySpace and was interested. They worked along side some of my favorite bands and gave me some hope for brighter days.

Today, I am a positive person with goals, dreams and will-power. I would even go as far as to say I’m strong. If you are ever feeling hopeless, I suggest you check the organization out. There are chapters all across the United States and some are popping up overseas. Hold on and keep smiling.

    Sounds like a great organization. My kids are in high school and I can’t believe how many of their friends suffer from depression. It is sad. School just doesn’t teach the important things in life, like how to communicate, how to meditate, how to manage your thoughts, your money, your time, and overall your life!
