Topics: Generalized Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Depression, Self-Care, and Mental Health Awareness
Alicia is a strong advocate for mental health awareness; her advocacy stems from lived experienced and the passion in her heart. Realizing she wanted to make a dent in ending the stigma surrounding mental illness and display, in the way of words, what anxiety looks like to her, she created Twenty Something & Anxious. In her blog she shares her experiences as a person who lives with Social Anxiety, Generalized Anxiety, and a Panic Disorder. These experiences include both the struggles she endures in her battle, as well as the small victories she’s made in her journey to overcome it.
Her advocacy remains evident within her profession, as she works in suicide and substance abuse prevention. She is a trained instructor of Mental Health First Aid, safeTALK, and QPR. She hopes to continue raising the awareness of mental health, both professionally and personally.
