(High School) Bullying and Mental Health Part 3

Posted by Marigrace Pilger on

Hello mental health champions, how are you doing?  Hello my sweet friends. I hope you are all doing so well.  I have been basically doing a blogging series about my personal experience with bullying and the impact it had on my own mental health. I am going to continue that today with another high school bullying story. This story of bullying was probably the hardest one I went through emotionally. To fully understand the bullying that went down, I feel like I need to share the backstory and what led to the bullying taking place. I think sometimes we think...

Timelines Don't Matter

Posted by Marigrace Pilger on

Hello mental health champions, how are you doing?  Today I just want to speak from my heart. This has been weighing so heavily on my mind and I know that there are a lot of other people that feel the same way. Something I don’t think school or the movies prepared us for: what it is like in your 20s. And if you’re no longer in your 20s, don’t stop reading now. I think what I am going to talk about can help people of all ages. For some reason though, in my twenties is the first time I have...

Bullying and Mental Health, My Story Part 1

Posted by Marigrace Pilger on

Hello mental health champions, how are you doing?  Today I want to address something that isn’t talked about enough. I feel like a couple years ago there was an influx of suicides because of bullying and there was so much awareness. However, I feel like since then, bullying has been completely off the map. Sometimes it can even be worse now that people can hide behind a screen and attack. I remember when I was younger and watched Cyberbully on either Disney or Nick.. but I think it was Nickelodeon because I am pretty sure Disney wouldn’t have condoned that...

Finding the Right Therapist for You

Posted by Marigrace Pilger on

Hello mental health champions, how are you doing?  I wanted to post one more time about therapy. I got a great amount of responses on my last post and I thought that maybe instead of talking about my own experience with therapy, I will talk about how to help you find the best therapist for you. I know that many people are trying to find the right person for them and if I can help in any way is what matters to me.  So first off, we are so lucky in this day in age that we have options in...
