HuffPost - Gray Again Video Premiere

“Zoloft, Lithium, Xanax, Wellbutrin, Lexapro. The list goes on for Elisabeth Beckwitt as she recalls the feeling of void in her new video for “Gray Again.”  A survivor and advocate of addiction and support, Beckwitt’s video recounts her trial and error of working to become “normal” once again.

Throughout her life Elisabeth struggled with severe anxiety and depression which led her to seek professional psychiatric assistance from McLean Hospital. It was here she was diagnosed with a variety of behavioral and mood disorders stemming from childhood trauma. The help Elisabeth received gave her the tools she needed to make it through a difficult time in her life while teaching her to manage her diagnosis. Her clear, powerful voice typically accompanied by piano, Elisabeth weaves stories from her life and the lives of those closest to her that are relatable and encapsulating. It is her hope that by being open about her disorder and sharing her personal struggles, she can help to erase the stigma that is often times associated with mental health. 

Beckwitt’s video preaches that we are all unique, our brain chemistry and DNA is what makes us human. Beckwitt calls on those to never stop learning as much as you can, and asking for help. “Find your equilibrium, find your treatment, find your tribe.”
