About Dani Zee, Author of the Mental Health for the Digital Generation Vlog
My name is Dani Zee. I am a mental health consumer and advocate. I am also a business owner, a friend, a daughter and a sister.
I have been video blogging on YouTube for over a year about my life and living with mental illness. My purpose in doing this is to raise awareness about mental illness and to support people that experience it. Now, I'm glad to be here at HealthyPlace.com sharing mental health information and insights with young adults who are dealing with mental health problems and may being going through what I've experienced.
My Mental Health History
I have been dealing with mental health problems since I was about 11 years old. I have been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and bipolar disorder. I have experienced a lot of other problems, like an eating disorder and addiction, because of it. At times in my life, I felt all I did was cause damage to myself and everything around me. I was finally given the correct diagnosis of borderline personality disorder at about age 23 and started receiving the proper treatment.
Things got worse before they got better but through lots of mental health treatment and the support of my family and friends, I feel I am finally at a point in life that I am pretty stable. I am not cured of mental illness. I still have ups and downs and I know I will always have to work to maintain my mental health. I am functional today though and I am able to create successes in my life and maintain good relationships.
