Introduction to Megan Griffith, Author of 'Recovering from Mental Illness'
I’m Megan Griffith and I’m a new blogger for Recovering from Mental Illness, a topic I’m finally learning to embrace after five years of running in circles around my mental health struggles. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder type II in 2014, but in the last year, my mental health team and I have decided that diagnosis was incorrect. However, no new diagnosis has been made yet, so for now, I’m learning how to recover on my own terms.
Megan Griffith’s Goals for 'Recovering from Mental Illness'
Mental illness recovery can look different for different people, different diagnoses, and at different times in our lives. I hope my contributions to Recovering from Mental Illness can explore and represent all kinds of recovery, and provide support for people like me, who want to feel better, to be better, but aren’t sure how to go about it. I want to make this a space where everyone can find something that works for them, and I hope this blog can help all of us make meaningful changes in our thoughts, behaviors, and perspectives that bring us closer to the life we want to live.

I’m 24 years old, my hair never stays the same color for more than six months, and I could (and sometimes do) eat ice cream for every meal.
