Received the following request to join an initiative, this being based upon my Website and work.

I feel honoured to be asked, and I have confirmed I will participate, as it will help more people.

Northwestern University’s #BreakTheStigma campaign has launched!

Message Dear Lilly: I’m on the marketing team for Northwestern University and I wanted to reach out to you directly about the launch of our #BreakTheStigma Campaign for May’s Mental Health Month!

We would love to get your participation in our efforts. You are an example of someone who is breaking down stigmas surrounding mental illness. Counseling@Northwestern is honored to celebrate leaders like you who work every day to stomp out negative attitudes and stereotypical beliefs about those who have mental health conditions.

We recently posted an announcement on our blog for #BreakTheStigma that details how we plan to spread awareness about this initiative. http://counseling.northwestern.edu/announcing-the-breakthestigma-campaign/ Since you are a voice with an audience in the mental space, would you do us the honor of partnering with us to promote our campaign on your website? I can send you an intro/description of our Call-To-Action along with our mental health month logo to illustrate for a quick and easy blog post.

We also invite you to participate in a Tweet Chat on Tuesday, May 12th at 5:00 pm PT/8:00 pm EST. Please join us to discuss the ways that stigmas prevent individuals from seeking help and get expert recommendations on how you as an individual can help to break them. It’s just 5 days away so encourage your followers to join the conversation as well! To RSVP: twvt.us/ve9l Please feel free to reach out to me with additional questions or for additional ways you can get involved!

Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

  1. Congratulations! I’m a new follower and sister on this healing journey. I told my husband last night that I have finally found my tribe.

    I am building my own courage right now to speak out against the stigma and you have inspired me to start blogging about this as well. I will let you know as soon as I get my blog up and running. Within the month, I hope! I’m a part-time student and work part-time at a community acupuncture clinic (yea! unlimited free acupuncture!), and have been in a growth phase, which means a lot of painful days followed by days requiring absolute rest, so I’m a little behind in some deadline-driven areas right now.

    You ROCK, Lilly! You have given me the courage to to stand strong and stop being afraid of owning what has happened to me–and countless others– at the hands of what were supposed to be our most intimate and trusting bonds. I love you for being courageous.
