Do we have a story that inspires and helps others? We need to speak up and share a way that alleviates suffering and helps others to rise above a temporary downfall. We must seek out solutions and find a way to help others who are most vulnerable.
I read a story of one mother who almost went bankrupt supporting her mentally ill son. I realize that my family was suffering in the same way and that we had kept this secret hidden and now that my mother who has been the backbone of our family, I took a leap of faith and decided it was time to speak out about the trap of student loans and how mental illness often accompanies.
We are all affected by someone in a family that suffers an illness. It can wreck your finances and job performance and relationships. The money problems can lead to mental illness, addiction and even prison. It is time to speak up about the inequalities and find solutions.
I set up a go fund me account and began asking for others to stand with me to find a solution. I expressed that I wanted to help reduce my daughter and my friend student loan debt, help them with housing and receive help with the mental illness. Hopefully others will sense that we can help and bring the demoralizing effect of student loans and mental illness by offering concrete solutions.
Did you know that many people today who are homeless are due to economic hardship and many are trying to find a way out of the mental anguish.
Thank you for supporting this go fund campaign.
