Christina Huff Chief Operating Officer, WEGO Health Expert, Mental Health Activist & Blogger
Meet Christina Huff
A Chicago native, Christina Huff devoted the first part of her career to law, one of her many passions. She attended the John Marshall Law School after receiving her B.A. and B.S. at Southern Illinois University, and spent several years working as a paralegal in several prestigious Chicago law firms.
After a diagnosis of bipolar disorder, Christi began the second part of her career with the same zest and passion she gave to studying law. In learning about her own struggles with mental illness, Christi developed a calling and talent for helping others. Her first venture was writing for the website, Ask A Bipolar, which then led to becoming the President of the initiative. She also blogged monthly for International Bipolar Foundation, with her articles published in their book, Healthy Living With Bipolar Disorder. She then began blogging on her own website, Musings of a Bipolar Hot Mess, where she shares her everyday struggles in hopes of inspiring others so they too can find hope in living with a mental illness. She also guest blogs on other sites and does interviews on living with bipolar and mental health issues.
Christina volunteers because...
When I was first diagnosed with bipolar, resources like those Hope Xchange offers were simply not available. I volunteer because I want to give to others what I didn't have: support, knowledge and guidance that are so needed but that most either don't know where to find or simply don't have access to or can't afford.
These things are so important to the road to recovery and sustained stability. I want to help others find their way as I believe we are all entitled to loving care and support regardless of financial means.
