Letters to Strangers

Youth-for-Youth Mental Health Guidebook

January 2020

Mental Health Guidebook is the world’s first-ever youth-for-youth mental health guidebook created by the global youth-run non-profit, Letters to Strangers. The non-profit itself seeks to destigmatize mental illness and increase access to affordable, quality treatment for youth aged 13 to 24.


I contributed three poems focusing on anxiety and depression: "In Regard to Childhood Loneliness,” “Safety Net School,” and “Weed Daisies.”
