mission statement


Lemon Theory © EST. 2019:

Lemon Theory © was created on two foundational values:

1. Everyone has the ability and right to live a happy, healthy, and connected life despite the challenges and stigmas of mental health.

2. Life isn't just two sides, one kind of person, culture, background, sexuality, gender, or ethnicity. There is more to our story, and as humans, we can be a bit messy and raw, and that's all right.

This concept is where the term, Lemon Theory ©, was born. It is a refreshing take on the modern generation that hits some sour topics that aren't easy to talk about but should be discussed. Blended with the modern age of social media—prose, poetry, articles, podcasts, visual art, photography, and videography—Lemon Theory © will grow into a community of those devoted to learning more about themselves and what it means to be human. 

Founded by an imperfect human being who suffers from multiple mental and physical health problems, Sarah McKinnon strives to produce uplifting, genuine, and versatile articles as she navigates her way transparently through young adulthood.
