Melissa Manzur

Peer Support Specialist

My personal journey toward mental health has been a winding road, filled with many challenging experiences that have tested my strength in ways I never thought possible. Living with bipolar disorder and ADHD has meant navigating constant highs and lows, wrestling with a mind that often feels like a rollercoaster ride. There were moments when the despair seemed too deep, when the urge to give in felt overwhelming. But here I am, standing tall, proof that recovery is possible.

It’s been eight years since I broke free from an abusive relationship, a journey that taught me the true meaning of resilience and self-worth. And for over two years now, I’ve been walking the path of sobriety, that reminds me every day of the strength within me. Anxiety and depression have been constant companions on this journey, gloom that lurks in the corners of my mind. But I’ve learned to face it head-on, to seek help when I need it and to find comfort in the knowledge that I am not alone.

So why do I do what I do? Because I know firsthand the power of hope, the healing that comes from reaching in and then out and finding someone who understands. With empathy born from my own struggles, I’m here to walk alongside you, to offer a hand to hold and a shoulder to lean on as you navigate your own path to wellness.

Somewhere along our path someone taught us that we had to earn love, but that is simply not true you deserve love because you exist.
