Lydia Migneault

Lydia Migneault has lived with mental illness from a very young age, fighting suicidal thoughts. After several years of highs and lows, hospitalizations for suicide attempt, work stoppages, recovery and relapse, she was finally diagnosed with anxiety, borderline personality disorder as well as an eating disorder. Following her diagnosis in 2017, she began speaking openly about her mental illness, which helped her make sense of all these episodes. Thanks to therapy and the support of her family, today she is living a healthy and balanced life on a personal, social and professional level. Lydia is involved in various projects to talk about mental health and giving back to the next generation. She is also a blogger and contributor to a blog which aims to fight against taboos and prejudices towards mental illness and has more than 10,000 subscribers.
