Alicia’s been fighting bad guys all her life. Super villains in fact. Like anxiety and depression. Suicidal feelings. And then, at the very tender age of 13, a suicide attempt. No one was listening. Alicia’s 28 now. And she doesn’t hide behind her mask and cape. At least not anymore. She has an honest to goodness superpower now: it’s her voice, loud and clear. She tells it like it is. And it is hard. Hard to be a person living with mental illness in a world where no one’s listening.
