Hello! My name is Zina Weaver and on August 30th, 2017 I will be celebrating my 21st birthday! Instead of throwing an elaborate party or celebrating at a local bar, I would like to compel all of my friends and family to help me celebrate by donating to Mental Health America of Aiken County. Advocating for mental health has always been one of my biggest passions in life and I hope to share it with all of you as we work together to create a positive impact in the field of mental health. Sadly, more often than not, mental health is not valued in the public eye. Everyday there are individuals that struggle with depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, eating disorders, body dysmorphia, addiction, any many other mental health illnesses. However the stigma associated with having a MI along with a lack of education and resources results in many not receiving the help and support they deserve. Together, along with Mental Health America, we can help change the way we view mental health and give it the acknowledgment and support it's worthy of.
