Hey! My name is Lena Ford & I'm a mental health advocate!!

Whether or not you have a mental illness, everyone has mental health that they need to take care of!
So take some time to learn about yourself and, as my mom always says: 
"be the best you can be!" 
I am just a small town girl with big dreams! I would say that I grew up in a small town in Vermont, but every town in Vermont is a small town. So I guess I grew up in a normal town in Vermont :) 
 
The outdoors is a huge part of my life. Don't get me wrong, going to the beach is nice, but I much prefer to get lost in the woods. I find it so much more relaxing to be surrounded by nature and wildlife rather than other people. I also love the mountains, whether I'm hiking up or snowboarding down!
 
I love spending time with animals big and small. I love to hang out with cows, watch deer roam in the wlid, or pet literally any dog I meet. I am also obsessed with whales! I have been on an east coast whale watch and hope to go on a west coast watch soon. I find whales to be so majestic and I am simply awestruck by their size.

My Current Obsessions

TV Show: The Office (always). But I am pretty hyped about the upcoming season of American Horror Story :)
SongThunder by Imagine Dragons
AlbumRainbow by Kesha is giving me LIFE right now!!
Dessert: Strawberries with whipped cream. I'll put whipped cream on just about anything if we're being honest, but it's strawberries so it's, like, healthy....
Hobby: I have an obsession with all things paranormal. I believe in mediums and spirits and demons and I love them all. TV shows, books, movies, I love it all. I have never been ghost hunting in real life, but it's on my bucket list.
Celeb Crush: I've always loved me some Biebs, but Harry Styles is also very delicious. 
Girl Crush: Adele. Fucking Adele....
Animal​: WHALES. I LOVE WHALE. THEY SCARE ME BUT I LOVE THEM SO FRICKEN MUCH.

I have been living with mental illness for most of my life (I was officially diagnosed a few years ago) and I hope that by sharing my story, I can inspire others.

There is SO MUCH stigma attached to mental illness, and I want to do whatever I can to help change that.

Mental Illness' are nothing to be ashamed of. If you think you may have a mental illness, owning up to it and asking for help is a sign of strength, NOT weakness.
