Solidarity Wall

Alena

I have decided to join One Foot Forward to help raise awareness about post natal anxiety & depression. I have personally experienced and still experiencing this after having my son. So I want to walk for all the other beautiful Mothers out there that are going through any degree of mental struggle, because it is very real and not spoken about openly/or frequently. I hope that it sparks conversations along the way which will help others to open up. If feels lonely but you are not alone, and you are stronger than you think.

I'm walking in solidarity this October. After spending a good chunk of the last 10 years in and out of dark places I finally feel I'm free. I want to be a part of something that helps people find their peace.
