Share Your Story: Beauty Behind Becca

“Yo, I’m Becca. Brace yourself.”

Meet Becca. She’s working on breaking the stigma of mental illness by sharing her story and experience with Tourette’s, OCD and other challenges. Discovered her video on a HuffPost story.

Appreciated HuffPost’s correction at the bottom of the story: “CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story misidentified Tourette’s as a mental, rather than neurological, disorder.”

I didn’t know that and hadn’t thought about the definition previously … Tourette’s is one of the diagnoses they didn’t give me because of my age at the onset of speech issues after my mental illness triggered.

Keep your roar on, Becca. We hear you.
