She told me survival is a talent.”

-Susanna Kaysen

Hi, welcome to Survival is a Talent, a mental health blog founded by me, August. After being hospitalized for psychosis, I started this blog as a part of my journey to recovery. Now that I’m in recovery, I use this blog to continue raising awareness and share what I’ve learned. If you’re interested in having your story featured on Survival is a Talent, shoot me a message at blogsurvivalisatalent@gmail.com.

A little bit more about me: I’m a freelance writer, blogger, and social media manager. You can find my writing on The Mighty, Thought Catalog, The Odyssey Online, and on various blogs across the web. My first published story is available for preorder in an anthology called The I’mpossible Project: Changing Minds, Breaking Stigma, Achieving the Impossible (Volume). It will be in stores November 2017. My poetry was published in the 2014 edition of Georgia State’s Undergraduate Art and Literary Journal called Underground. You can find me on Instagram, Twitter, PinterestFacebook, and LinkedIn. For freelance inquiries, find me on Upwork.

Survival is a Talent is now on Patreon! HUGE thanks to Abby Whittredge, Tom C., Daniel Watts, Emily Deibler and Richter Sundeen for supporting this blog!
