Raising Awareness of Mental Health

Tonight I tell my story of my mental illness and how I cope with it. Raising Awareness in the community is important. Many times people don’t know where or who to turn to when first diagnosed. I never knew anything about mental health when I was first sick. But that was 20 years ago.

Now I talk formally and informally with people. The more people know the better society will become. It affects 1 in 5 people. I have many friends that have a family member with mental illness. Or they themselves are sick. Mental illness is common so let’s be frank and open about it. Let’s inform people the more the better.
