This week for #freeyourmindfriday, Caroline McKeown, the mental health warrior behind @positivitywithcaroline, took over our Insta stories to talk about all things mental health! Check out her bio below, and head over to Instagram to see what she had to say!
My name is Caroline McKeown, I am 16-years-old and a junior at Saint Ursula Academy. I am diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder, with a past of depression and suicidal thoughts. After I shared my mental health journey through 1N5 at the beginning of May, I started my page @positivitywithcaroline. I started this page because I want to spread awareness for mental health, give encouragement to others, and spread love. I also have my own vlog series through 1N5 called “Dear Caroline” where I talk about mental health topics focused on teens. I hope that what I post adds a little light into someone’s day or give someone hope who feels hopeless. I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to inspire others while being the person I’ve always have wanted to be.
