Hi, my name is Jonathan. I live in Round Rock, Texas. I am currently enrolled at Texas State University. I experienced a mental breakdown in my early college years, and was forced to drop out. With continuous family support, medication, talk therapy, and perseverance I overcame my mental health diagnosis and live a meaningful life. I participate in work ordered day at Austin Clubhouse working side by side with members to help other people with mental health diagnoses find hope and recover. I will graduate from Texas State University next spring. Now I excel academically, I have made the Dean’s list four times. I have experienced a long road of ups and downs with perseverance came newfound strength.
