Molly Burford

Mental Health Advocate, Wellness Writer


Mental Health, Sexual Health, Wellness


Michigan State University


I share my struggles with mental health because I want to raise awareness and also show others they aren’t alone in their own journeys. By shining more light on topics such as depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, and more, I hope to help dismantle the stigma that surrounds mental illness. Education is everything, and it starts with real stories from real people.
