Megan volunteers because...
I struggle with my own mental health and understand the day-to-day difficulties that accompany living with a mental illness. During previous hospitalizations, I interacted with social workers who changed my perspective on social work and advocacy. Those experiences gave me the desire to be on the ground helping those in need.
