If you’ve been reading my blogs…the few there are…you’ll know I lost my job at the beginning of the year. I have not found another job as of yet, but had an interview and I’m waiting to hear back. I do hope I get the job, but in the meantime, I am now a student. I just finished my first course and am now starting the second.
I had the bright idea to go back to school at the age of 41 to pursue a BA in Psychology. So far I’ve not taken anything “fun”…just the basics. The basics are just as important but I have to admit I got a little bored during the first course.
I chose Psychology for obvious reasons if you’ve been reading my blogs. If you haven’t kept up, I fight mental health disorders and wanted to get the education to help others. The question we were asked in the first course was what do we plan on making our focus of our chosen career and it didn’t take much thought for me to know where my heart lies.
I plan to focus on suicide prevention and mental health awareness. These two subjects are near and dear to my heart. Having been someone who has contemplated suicide, I understand the emotion that goes with that mindset. I want to help others get past those moments.
Mental health awareness has its own month and is own color and even though those are awesome attention getters, I want to work on getting the message out that mental illness is real and unless you’ve experienced it, you know nothing about it. I still have many things to learn, but I’d love for you to follow me on my journey.
Follow my blog and let’s see what the future holds.
