I am passionate about helping others. If I could earn a living doing what I love most, I would create a program dedicating one volunteer to a patient who is struggling with a mental illness, whether an eating disorder, depression, addiction, or other mental struggles. These volunteers for each patient would be their friend and supporter. These patients can be aware that someone does care for them. Maybe an eating disorder patient wants to go out to lunch with a volunteer to get help through a challenging meal, or someone with social anxiety may want to go see a movie with a volunteer. I feel mental health patients are not advocated for enough. These patients are so strong to pursue their road to recovery and deserve more support for their efforts. In such a program, I want patients to be aware their disorders to not determine who they are as a person. Someone will always be there to do everyday activities with them to enrich their lives for the better.
