TWLOHA Amherst Official Blog

To Write Love On Her Arms Amherst is a chapter organization that builds community on campus with an emphasis on hope. We apply the mission of the nonprofit To Write Love On Her Arms through campus involvement, efforts in Pioneer Valley, and through our interaction with mental health topics at regular meetings. Our purpose is twofold. We aim to be the bridge between existing mental health resources and the existing ways people manage to cope with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide by providing community while also providing students an outlet to advocate, inform, and inspire by getting involved in a student-led effort that addresses mental health. We're not a 'support group,' but rather an inclusive community group that brings a light to important issues often left in the dark. Hope is real. Help is real. Join the Movement.

just a reminder. we WILL be the hopeful. regardless of the dark nights, locked bathroom doors, the hidden tears, and relapses, weak moments, hopeless moments. with these come the bright, burning sunrises, the warm arms on the other side of that door. the soft shaking hands wiping your tears, begging softly with you for better days. the relapses lead to the recovers, the anniversaries of days clean tumbling into years clean. those weak, hopeless moments will be overwhelmed by the strength you are capable of. that hopelessness will be obliterated by the fierceness in which we hope. we just need to hold tight to that hope. and spread it through to others struggling. isolation breeds the negativity. we have no need for isolation. we must reach out to each other. if we share our hope, regardless of how small it may be, it is still there.

love you guys!
