The many faces of Mental Health.
Who’s in your home, a close friend, your next door neighbor suffering with this ugly illness. But suffering inside, batting many battles to stay alive? Could it be your daughter? Your son? Your mother? Your spouse? Your closest friend.
Do they look happy all the time masking their pain? When they look down, when you ask what’s wrong. Are their responses, usually “I’m ok”! But they really not ok…. Its unfortunate some of us have to live with this illness rather other illness that are acknowledged.
Mental Disorder is frowned on as a result. Awareness! It’s a huge issue…you never know what someone is struggling with. You never know who is losing this battle so close to you but not aware. There are signs!! Normally, your love ones whether they are family or friend are crying out for help.
But, the stigma; which one is “ugh!! He’s/she’s always so negative. He’s/she’s always acting so weird… you can play a huge part in saving someone’s life.. Learn how…
