Approximately 18.8 million American adults, or about 9.5 percent of the U.S. population age 18 and older in a given year, have a depressive disorder.
10 out of every 100000 Americans commits suicide
To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery.
Each year around Valentine's Day TWLOHA host a day (two days this year) as a worldwide event with the intention that "Love is the Movement" and that "Recovery is Possible."
This is my fourth year participating in the event, in this movement.
