I created th!nktank after going through a year long journey of mental health recovery. As I came out the other side of the tunnel, I wondered how much earlier I would’ve reached out for help had I known what I know now: the hardest part of this journey is letting yourself ask for help. The stigma regarding mental health prevented me from seeking help. I decided to create th!nktank in the hopes of building something that visually represents how commonplace and normal mental health is. I wanted to give people a platform to share their stories, and provide hope to people dealing with mental health themselves. We all are on the same journey, so there’s no need to go it alone.
