A DIAGNOSIS IS NOT A DEFINITION.
We are not defined by our diagnosis.
We are who we are when we are.
Labels can be both helpful and harmful.
THIS IS NOT A MORAL FAILURE.
These stigmas are institutionalized – both within society and the individual.
Society has taught us to espouse a zero-defect mentality – a false morality.
We believe that education breeds truth.
Challenge the narrative – demystify and destigmatize these conditions.
YOU ARE AN INDIVIDUAL - BUT YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
There are over 7 billion people in the world.
Someone somewhere has experienced something similar.
We are there to help others because we know what’s it’s like to be there.
We desire an open discussion about mental health and substance use.
We are your friends, your family members, and those that you meet in random passing.
We refuse to hide behind a façade of normalcy because you and society fear us.
We break your idea of the social agreements and refuse to comply with your marginalization.
We are unabashedly honest because that is the only way to change the narrative.
We are the human condition, and frankly, the only ones truly honest about it.
We challenge you to take up the call – be Unonymous – be honest – hide nothing.
