We are so thankful for the generosity and support that you have shown over the past several weeks. As we continue to receive gifts towards our year end fundraising goal of $100,000, we have raised almost $78,0000 to help further our mission to bring awareness, education and hope to university campuses!

Anorexia recovery – a magical time full of rainbows and sunshine and self-discovery, right? WRONG.
Recovery straight up sucks.
Now don’t get me wrong, choosing to recover saved my life. I would be dead otherwise. But that doesn’t mean it wasn’t the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

Have you ever experienced anxiety or panic when due to someone not returning a text? Have you ever had spiraling or out of control thoughts when someone does return a text? Have you ever counted how many times you checked your phone in one hour?

As most of you know, UShine is a mental and emotional health program that brings awareness, education, and hope to university students. We understand that anxiety, emotional distress, and depression can show up in every day ways and even life-threatening ways for our students. UShine strives to shift the conversation on campuses to create an open and accepting awareness and support of emotional and mental well-being. Our holistic programs help students understand the science of our emotions and feelings, find spiritual strength and hope in God's love and learn practical tools to help them better their well being - mind, body and spirit.
