99¢ Fundraiser for #TWLOHA - Hope & Help for Depression - ENDS THIS WEEK!
Please Share: Book Sale Benefit Ends This Week!
Throughout October, I have devoted much of my blog to Depression Awareness Month, including my personal struggle as well as recognizing the symptoms of depression and the warning signs of suicide, but I have also hoped to convey a sense of how Major Depressive Disorder feels.
Southern Girl Press and To Write Love on Her Arms have collaborated on a book sale benefit in an effort to help those who have never had to deal with depression understand.
Throughout October, all profits from a trio of vignettes entitled Alicia Embracing the Dark will be donated to TWLOHA, a non-profit organization that focuses on hope and relationships, in order to raise awareness, benefit the organization, and highlight National Depression Screening Day.
A Special Edition of this short collection is now available only from Amazon for 99¢ for Kindle or Kindle apps for any device.
Alicia Embracing the Dark expresses some aspect of depression as experienced by each author at some point in her life. It is published collectively under the name of a fictional character suffering from major depressive disorder and suicidal thoughts in the wake of her collapsing marriage in her own story, in which depression is a primary motif.
Please repost and retweet, get the word out, help others learn about mental illness, bipolar, and major depressive disorder. Encourage others to make the 99¢ contribution in support of TWLOHA. Let everyone know that there is help and there is hope.

You were created to love and be loved.
You were meant to live life in relationship with other people, to know and be known.
You need to know your story is important, and you're part of a bigger story.
Beyond treatment, we believe community is essential. People need other people. We were never meant to do life alone.
The vision is hope, and hope is real.
You are not alone, and this is not the end of your story.
