May is Mental Health Awareness Month!

You are not alone!

“May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Everyone has mental health! This designation for May was begun in 1949 by Mental Health America. Their theme this year is “Tools 2 Thrive.” Mental Health America provides resources to improve personal mental health and increase resiliency.”

The above text is a snippet from the Virtual Ability blog. I have blogged about Virtual Ability before and the good work that they do.

At some point in our lives we have suffered form mental health problems and/or have know others who have suffered.

Mental health illness still carries a bit of a stigma even in this day and age, so something like May being mental health awareness month is vital. Vital to those who are suffering and their loved ones. And vital to give a good insight into mental health issues to increase peoples knowledge of all the problems faced by sufferers.
