Rates of depression and suicide in young adults have spiked upwards of 37%, with females being twice as likely to suffer from depression. I personally have battled with OCD, anxiety, and depression from a young age, but, thanks to therapy and medication, am in a significantly better place now. There are still hard days, but now I know that I’m not alone in the way I feel. I’m proud to be part of @MediaplanetUSA’s new #EmpoweringYoungWomen campaign.
