Congratulations to Meagan Barnes, who was crowned Mrs. DC America last weekend. She’s chosen to use her platform to raise awareness for mental health issues (and Mental Health America).
Meagan is actively involved in the community and works tirelessly to bring mental health challenges to the forefront of discussions. She is the Founder of an online resource for women suffering from anxiety and panic disorders. She also is a blogger for EmpowHER.com, an award-winning social health company for women. Meagan is also known for hosting a bi-weekly support group where women who have anxiety and panic disorders, can connect with other women and share their stories and journeys. She has been nicknamed “The Angelic Warrior,” by her peers for her bravery in speaking up on issues regarding the mental health state of women.
