Trektohappiness - Branding Launch
So, pre-corona, I decided to do a thing...
I've developed some 'business' cards, although technically trektohappiness is not a business! I'm just determined to try and find ways to promote mental health awareness and reducing the stigma of mental illness.
Sometimes I really struggle with this. I stress and worry that what I'm doing isn't helping and sometimes it gets me really down. It can be hard to find the motivation when you feel like what you're doing isn't really helping. I think a lot of the negative thoughts and self doubt I have is just the depression talking but then I shake that off and come back to what I'm really here for.
The purpose of trektohappiness is to reduce the stigma of mental illness and letting others know that it's okay not to be okay. So many people struggle and hide their mental illness and my aim is to let people know they are not alone. It can be a tough thing to talk about and a tough thing to understand.
Hopefully trektohappiness can continue to raise awareness through sharing people's real life experiences dealing with mental health issues. Mental illness doesn't have to be a taboo subject and hopefully we can continue to be able to talk more and more openly about it!
