For as long as I could remember, I’ve had lots of system involvement. By the age of 9, I was removed from my parent’s custody with only the clothes on my back and the hope that maybe life could be better. When I was first diagnosed at the age 17 with Depression and PTSD, it was a very lonely and scary time for me, due to my childhood experiences I had difficulty trusting adults in my life.
I do not remember exactly when I was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), but I think that it was in the first grade. So mental health treatment has been a part of my life since I was relatively young. Despite my ADHD diagnosis, I don’t remember my mental health being a true barrier to my wellbeing until I began high school.
