Shelley, 18 – Brooklyn, United States

SKAM gave me the strength to go back on my antidepressants, after I had abandoned it for months, denying my mental health issues. SKAM gave me the courage to come out to my mom, even after I had given up hope. SKAM taught me that there is beauty and comfort in religion. SKAM taught me that friendship is one of the most beautiful things in life. Thank you, SKAM, for everything you’ve given me. I will never forget it.
