Anger is not a place I like to write from. I despise this state, the energy it takes. I understand the value of counting
#mentallyfit Team Canada Goalie, Keynote Speaker, Mental Health
Kendra grew up knowing exactly what she wanted. Years ago, when faced with the opportunity to realize her dream of goaltending for Team Canada, Kendra was diagnosed with severe mental illness; forcing her to leave the National Program in order to seek help. Kendra now shares her personal journey in efforts to bring Mental Health issues to the forefront. It is her hope that her story will offer both hope and promise to others dealing with Mental Illness. <br> http://www.mentallyfit.com
It took me almost 5 years to learn that I knew nothing about mental illness and I had no idea where to go for help. It all felt pointless, there was no "reason" left. At that moment I knew I had a choice to make -- I could accept there was no point, or I could find a way to make a point. I knew there had to be more; more help, more resources, more support -- I just had to find it.
