“Meaningful travel tips tales for mental health” an eBook by Erin Oppenheim from GoAbroad.com
One in four people in the world will suffer from mental illness in their lifetime. On the spectrum of disorders and illnesses, this looks different for everyone— just as treatment looks different for everyone. As transformative and freeing as travel can be, it’s important to remember that it won’t always be a perfect or positive experience for everyone. There is a dominant narrative in travel, one that portrays a very go-getter, happy-go-lucky, high-spirited, wonderful, magical experience. Sometimes, that just isn’t the case. What’s most important, however, is to remember that the less-than-instagram-worthydays should not prevent you from meaningful travel. You can not only travel, study, intern, teach, and volunteer abroad with a mental illness, but you can thrive while doing it.
