Mental Health Awareness Month

Mental Health Awareness Month

There has often been a stigma attached to seeking help for mental health needs. Although the general discourse regarding mental health has changed drastically in our society, we still need to bring awareness to the importance of mental health.

The fact is - 1 in 4 people will suffer from some form of mental illness in any given year. Not all pain is physical and not all wounds are visable. Whether experiencing a season of life that has knocked you down, or dealing with a lifelong mental health condition, there is no shame in seeking help.  

Mental Health is HEALTH.
