It's been a while since I last posted, I know, but that has been because life has been super hectic.
In any case, I wanted to make sure I posted TODAY.
Why?? You might ask. Well, today is "Mental Health Blog Day 2011" and I want to raise awareness!!
There are several great blog posts going up today, so mine will be short, sweet, and to the point.
Mental health affects all of us, in some way, shape, or form, every day of our lives. Some days you may be in good mental health. Some days it may not be so good. The important thing is you recognize that the mere fact you have a MIND means you have varying degrees of mental health throughout your life.
Some may struggle with mental health issues more than others....and they should NOT have to be ashamed of that. So this is me, telling YOU that if you are suffering in silence because you feel like you can't talk about mental health....reach out and ask for support!!
It is only by asking for support that we help to reduce the stigma our society, at large, still has, surrounding mental health.
If someone you know and love is suffering, offer them your support.
If we all band together, we can end the negative stigma mental health issues have in our country, and work together to help those who need it!! Because let's face it -- everybody has "something."
Happy Mental Health Blog Day!!
