Keven Jacobs

Hello There!

My name is Keven. For as long as I can remember, I've struggled with anxiety and depression. As a child, I was terrified to go to school. I was painfully shy, and had a hard time making friends. Throughout highschool, I battled a mixture of anxious days, and depressed days. A constant teeter totter of highs and lows. Then, when I went to college, it peaked.

But I'm here, writing this blog, to take a stand against mental illness, and the stigmas that plague the people who face it. I'm here to talk about mental illness openly.
