Welcome to Hold the Stigma!
Hold the Stigma was created by me, Nic, to share my mental health experiences and knowledge on mental health issues. I have lived with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (with panic attacks), Major Depression, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder predominantly inattentive type (formerly known as ADD), and complex PTSD for many years and have become more resilient over the years.
I’m a Pittsburgh native finishing up my public health degree, a trained presenter for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Southwestern Pennsylvania chapter and have written for several websites including The Mighty and Stigma Fighters. I’m also one of the co-leaders for Team Not Ashamed.
My biggest passions are mental health awareness, educating people, and fighting the stigma and stereotypes associated with mental illness. My aim is to educate, inspire, and hopefully entertain (who says mental health awareness can’t be fun?). Enjoy!
