As we come to the end of Mental Health Awareness Month, let’s keep in mind that so many still don’t seek help. While being scared to come forward, stigma and discrimination plays a big role! If you have taken anything away from my posts, please seek help or help a friend/family too. There’s nothing weak about seeking help, and I’m so glad I did. Mental Illness shouldn’t last 31 days, it should last all year. If we continue to talk about it, we can get so many the help they need. I don’t plan on stopping today. I will continue to speak about it, as long as I have breath in my body.
“There has been a 60% increase in mental health services, with little funding from the government to help us out. 1 in 5 adults have a mental condition, that’s over 40 million Americans. 56% of American adults with a mental illness DID NOT receive treatment”. -Mental Health of America
