Hi, I'm Namarita. I believe that the right support system can be a lifesaver. Growing up, my mother had a chronic and complicated mental disorder called schizophrenia. I struggled to play many roles, a child, a carer, and a student. But, my life began to change when I was able to begin to ask for help. I shared things that were worrying me with others, started journaling and writing, and a world of support opened up for me.
