David Watson is a Chairman on the Board of Bring Change 2 Mind, which is an organization dedicated to mental health awareness. David is passionate about mental illness. He knows that 1 out of 4 people are affected worldwide, and that his daughter Emily was one of them.
Emily lost her battle with Borderline Personality Disorder in 2013, and David has since dedicated his life towards raising awareness and striving to end the stigma that is still very much alive when mentioning mental illness.
After enduring the unfathomable pain of losing his daughter, David’s goal is simple.
“If I can help change the perception of the world towards people that are sick, so these people can get the right help, maybe I can save a life. Maybe our family can help save another parent from going through what we’ve suffered through.” - David Watson
If you’re struggling with a mental illness please know that it’s not weak to speak about how you’re feeling. Find a friend, family member, or professional to talk to so you can get the proper help you deserve. There are plenty of stigma-free organizations and nonjudgmental caretakers that are dedicated to hearing your story and guiding you back to wellness.
