“My Life is finally in order, and no longer in mental disorder” ~ Karen Carrington
“I boldly told my story, I had to heal, I had to let go of my past and walk in confidence, I released my weakness and grabbed hold of my strength. DESTROY WHAT DESTROYS YOU! Every wound and scar turns into a story. Sharing my story on battling mental illness healed me and now helps others.

“In Nov 2015 Karen Carrington came to the Heron Park Community to speak to our youth and it was the most attentive we have ever seen our youth. They were all moved and inspired by her story/journey with mental health. A lot of youth felt that mental health is an issue in the Heron Park community but no one talks about it so to have someone who is living with a condition share their experience first hand made youth feel comfortable to share challenges with mental health in their personal life with youth staff in the youth space. Karen’s speech provide us with a platform to be discuss mental health openly with our youth and provide them with the necessary support need to move forward. Thank you so much Karen!!!!”
